What is Science Olympiad?
Olympiad functions much like a football or soccer team, requiring
preparation, commitment, coaching and practice throughout the year. Each
school-based team is allowed to bring 15 students who cross-train for a
variety of events in their skill set... 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 get involved..."
