Science Olympiad

What is Science Olympiad?

Science Olympiad is an academic science competition consisting of approximately 24 events. These events encompass biology, chemistry, physics, Earth/space science, and engineering. Each student works with a partner and performs in approximately four events. Each team has no more than 15 students with no more than seven seniors.  

 

Competitions

We typically compete three times during the year, each on a Saturday:

1.  A practice event is usually held a week or two after winter break.

2.  The Region Tournament is usually held toward the end of February.

3.  The State Tournament is usually held around the middle of March.

4.  We've never gone, but the National Tournament will be held on May 16 and 17 in Orlando, FL.

The MCHS Science Olympiad Team is composed of students of all ability and interest levels that have one thing in common — an interest in science and working with others. The Mission of the Mill Creek Science Olympiad Team is:

 

1. To bring science to life, to show how science works, to emphasize problem solving aspects of science and the understanding of science concepts.
2. To develop teamwork and cooperative learning strategies among students.
3. To make science education more exciting.
4. To promote high levels of achievement and a commitment to excellence, to demonstrate that American students can perform at levels that surpasses expectations of even practicing scientists and engineers.
