SCIENCE

OLYMPIAD

 

OVERVIEW

The science Olympiad is a national event that fosters scientific curiosity. Our school has participated at the regional competition for the past 10 years. The regional competition consists of roughly 20 events from topics in earth science, biology, chemistry, physics, and engineering. Some of the events involve building/testing things like a trebuchet, a music instrument, a robot, or an ultralight rubber band powered airplane. Other events involve using the knowledge of a specific aspect of science such as forensics or molecular biology.
