      Welcome to
    Science Olympiad!
     
    Science Olympiad is an after school program where students who have an interest in and an enthusiasm for science, work with other students and event coaches to further learn about and compete in their chosen events. Team members attend event practices, research and study material for their events, and participate in tournaments both in and out of state!
  •  
    Over the 30 years Bearden Middle School has competed in Science Olympiad, our Bearden team has won an extremely impressive 25 State Championships! We have been proud to represent Bearden Middle School and the state of Tennessee at the National Science Olympiad tournament with each State Championship win. While we absolutely want to continue to be competitive at the Regional and State levels, our goal is to grow and become more competitive at the National level as well.
     
    If you're interested in helping us achieve that goal, your first step should be to look over the list of events below.  If any of the topics interest you, and you have the desire and dedication to be a part of something special, then e-mail or go visit one of the faculty sponsors: 6th Grade-Mrs. Butterfield or Mrs. Poole; 7th Grade-Mrs. Kenny, or 8th Grade-Mrs. Ankrom. We'd be glad to give you more information and answer any questions you might have. You can also visit the National Science Olympiad website at www.soinc.org  for more information.  
     

     

     

    To our Community, 

    We are always looking for guest speakers or for additions to our coaching staff. If you have background or expertise in any of the science fields below, or if you know someone who might be interested in working with or becoming a part of our team, please contact the Head Coach or one of the faculty sponsors. 
     
    Also, our team is independently funded; we operate purely through fundraisers, donations, and grants.  If you would like to help support our team financially by making a financial donation, by sponsoring a student or a trip, or by donating materials, please contact the Head Coach or one of the faculty sponsors.  We are a 501(c)(3) organization, so all donations are tax deductible.
