Science Olympiad is a nonprofit organization developed 30 years ago to improve the quality of science education for students. The Science Olympiad consists of interscholastic competitions for students in grades 6th-12th. It is a way to provide recognition of outstanding achievement in science education by both students and teachers as teams from all 50 states compete at the Regional, State and National levels. WV winning teams qualify to compete in the National Tournament. The 2018 WV Science Olympiad will be held Saturday, February 24, 2018. Parents are welcome to be organizers for a team, as long as you have one teacher liason through a school. Homeschooled teams are welcome! Out-of-state teams are also welcome to attend our event as practice for other events. Please note though that out-of-state teams cannot place or advance to nationals through our state.
