Science Olympiad - Science Olympiad is a team competition where students compete in 24 different science events from various science content areas, like biology, chemistry, earth science, physics, and even engineering. Each team has up to 15 student members who prepare throughout the school year to compete in engineering events, hands-on events or knowledge based events. In the engineering events, students will construct something following pre-determined specifications in order to perform a pre-established task. Hands-on events are investigative in nature where students perform some type of experiment. For knowledge based events, students take a test, analyze sets of data, or use what they have studied to compete in the event. Events fall under five main categories: Life, Personal, and Social Science, Earth & Space Science, Physical Science & Chemistry, Technology & Engineering, Inquiry & Nature of Science. These events usually require up to two team members, and in one case three, to compete.
At Talley, our Science Olympiad team meets after school starting in November. We do not receive the rules and the events list until the end of October. Each year new events can replace older ones, and in some cases events are rotated through after a few years. We will have an interest meeting in late September/early October, so if you are interested in being part of our team, keep your ears open!
