For more than 30 years, Science Olympiad has been North America’s most prestigious team science and technology competition. Ohio Science Olympiad is dedicated to improving the interest of all students in the ever-changing world of Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). A strong emphasis is placed on active, hands-on participation, social development, leadership, and problem-solving skills to motivate and energize students to excel in and out of the classroom. Students demonstrate their skills and knowledge by participating in competitions that are similar to academic track meets. These competitions consist of a series of 23 team events for both middle and high school students. 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. By combining events from all disciplines, Science Olympiad encourages a wide cross-section of students to get involved.
Through Science Olympiad, students, teachers, parents, principals, and business leaders band together to work toward a shared goal.
