Science Olympiad

Science Olympiad is an American elementary, middle, and high school team competition in which students compete in 'events' pertaining to various scientific disciplines, including earth science, biology, chemistry, physics, and engineering. Over 6,400 teams from 50 U.S. states compete each year. There are three levels of competition: regional, state, and national. In addition, some states offer 'invitational' tournaments which serve as practice for regional and state competitions. Teams which excel at the regional competitions advance to the state, and then national, level.

CLPMS Science Olympiad

Everyone loves science, and Science Olympiad allows you to explore many different interests. With 20 different building and study events, there are topics of interest for everyone. Come out and show off your strengths (or find hidden ones).

For more information, check out www.soinc.org or talk with Ms. Hicks.


Parents, there are also opportunities for you to get involved with Science Olympiad! We need people to help coach students in events and people to help out on competition days. It’s a lot of fun and we all appreciate whatever time or energies you can lend.
