Welcome to Carolina Science Olympiad!

Science Olympiad is nationwide competition. Students compete in 23 events that include earth science, biology, chemistry, physics, and engineering. Science Olympiad is designed to increase a student’s interest in STEM fields and provide recognition for outstanding achievement in team events. Students compete in Science Olympiad with the top teams advancing from Regional to State to National levels.

Carolina Science Olympiad is a student organization composed of UNC-Chapel Hill volunteers who are dedicated to connecting current high school students to the dual worlds of science and Science Olympiad. We're excited to welcome teams to our virtual invitational tournament this year, with optional in-person build events.
