Science Olympiad

Science Olympiad (SO)is nationwide competition, designed to increase a student’s interest in STEM fields and provide recognition for outstanding achievement in team events. Science Olympiad competitions are like academic track meets, consisting of a series of up to 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. The top teams advance from Regional to State to National levels.

SO is team-based and teams are formed at the school level. If you are new to Science Olympiad and interested in forming a team, please read about team formation and roam the Virginia Science Olympiad website for further information.

VASO will run all of its *regional* tournaments in a hybrid model - the written tests will be done virtually on Written Test Day and a variety of Device Testing day options will be offered for the build events.
