Science Olympiad is an extracurricular program for students who have an interest in and an enthusiasm for science and other STEM related disciplines. They choose events they are interested in and then work with other students and event coaches to learn what they will need to know to compete with a partner in their chosen events at tournaments. Team members attend event practices, research and study material for their events, and participate in tournaments both in and out of state. In addition to broadening their science knowledge, they also work to develop organizational, interpersonal, and communication skills. The Bearden Science Olympiad team is a fantastic place for students to increase their knowledge in science and STEM related topics, develop other important skills, and meet other students who share their same interests.

To our Community,
We are always looking for support for our amazing students! It's always great to have supporters who have background or expertise in one or more of the science fields listed below, but it's not completely necessary. If you are interested in supporting our students, there are many ways to do so without any having any science or teaching background at all. Our students just need people who believe in them and are willing to donate some time to support them! We do have several opportunites for coaches, coaching assistants, and guest speakers, but you can support our students in many other ways: helping them develop organizational, interpersonal, and communication skills; helping to organize or particapate in fundraising events; working on a grant team; helping promote our team at the school and in the community; helping to plan logistics for our trips and competitions; or simply offering to supervise a small group of students while they study and practice. If you are interested in supporting our team in any capacity, please contact one of the faculty sponsors. We need you!
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 one of the faculty sponsors. We are a 501(c)(3) organization, so all donations are tax deductible.
