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.

We are delighted to announce that as part of our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiative, we will be offering fee waivers for a limited number of qualifying teams, by application only. To indicate interest in applying for a fee waiver, there will be a question on the pre-registration form. Interested teams will then be sent a link to our waiver application. Qualifying teams include those in rural or low-income districts, teams whose students are largely underrepresented in STEM fields, and teams who have extenuating financial circumstances.

UPDATE: We have reached our initial capacity limit for both divisions, though please do not hesitate to fill out our pre-registration form to be added to our waitlist!
