    What is Science Olympiad?
    Science Olympiad is a national, team-based science competition. The program consists of 23 different events covering topics from anatomy to geology to chemistry and more. No matter what your interests are, Science Olympiad has an event for you! Students will gain real-world experiences in STEM fields- such as visiting The Body Farm, touring functional chemistry labs, visiting arboretums, hunting for fossils, and more! Students will travel to different schools and colleges in and out of state to compete on a team of their peers with similar interests. Students will learn study skills, problem-solving, and teamwork as they work with their team to compete against other schools. Students have the opportunity to compete at the regional, state, and even national level. Events offer tours of national facilities, prize packages, and even college scholarships to winners at the national level.
