Science Olympiad

January 4th, 2025 
Update:  Registration for Capital Region Invitational will open on October 16, 2024. Preference will be given to teams in the Capital Region, teams who have attended previously, then any remaining teams in that order. If there is space remaining, we can try and accommodate schools that would like to bring a third team. All teams will be placed on the waitlist and then let into the tournament after registration has been open for one week.

Location:           Columbia High School 

962 Luther Road

East Greenbush, NY 12061

(We are just off I-90, east of Albany at Exit 9. The school is less than 5 minutes from the exit. )

 We will be running 23 events.  We will be using the same conflict blocks as the NYS Science Olympiad tournament. They can be found here: 

 We would like to host 35 teams. For now, we will be limiting the number of teams to two per high school. If there is space remaining and you are interested in bringing a third team, please reach out and we will see what we can do.

The cost of the event is $100/team.  The registration form must be mailed with a check in order to permanently reserve your spot. 

Each team of 15 must be accompanied to the Capital District Science Olympiad Invitational Tournament by at least one unique adult. 


  •  In order to run all events each team will need to write, set up, run and correct an event plus bring copies of the test and answer key for other teams to take home.  
  • We will collate the tests your students take and put them in an envelope for you to take home at the end of the day. You will also receive a digital copy of tests with an answer key from all the other events.  
  • We simply ask that you do not post these materials on any open forum after the invitational.


In the event your team is unable to attend due to a weather incident we will compile the tests and answer keys and send them out to you.


 All teams, regardless of region or state, are permitted to register for the invitational competition. However, each team (A & B) must be appropriately registered with their state organization in order to compete.

We hope you will come and participate in a fun filled event.
