ABOUT SCIENCE OLYLMPIAD
Founded in 1984, Science Olympiad is one of the premier science competitions in the nation, providing standards-based challenges for nearly 5,500 teams at 400 live and remote tournaments, in all 50 states, last year.
Science Olympiad competitions are like academic track meets, consisting of a series of 23 team events in each division (Division B is middle school; Division C is high school). Each year, a portion of the events are rotated to reflect the ever-changing nature of genetics, earth science, chemistry, anatomy, physics, geology, mechanical engineering and technology. By combining events from all disciplines, Science Olympiad encourages a wide cross-section of students to become involved. Emphasis is placed on active, hands-on group participation. Top performing teams in each division qualify for participation in the Ohio State Tournament.
In 2013, Cincinnati Science Olympiad joined with iSPACE to offer this opportunity in the Southwestern Ohio area. Many volunteers from colleges and industries in the Cincinnati area gather each year to provide this opportunity for students, many of whom could become the science and technology leaders of tomorrow.
The Ohio State Science Olympiad Tournament will be held on Saturday, April 29, 2023 and the National Science Olympiad Tournament will be held May 19-20, 2023 at Wichita State University.
