Science Olympiad Alumni Testimonials

I was a part of Science Olympiad from 4th grade until I graduated high school. Science Olympiad was the most helpful and productive activity I could have possibly done during those years. Because of the friendships I gained, the problem-solving and teamwork skills I developed, and all the interest in and preparation for a career in science and math, competing in Science Olympiad was awesome. In my nine years of competition, I can say that Science Olympiad is much more that just another extra-curricular activity to me. It gave me some of the greatest experiences I have ever had while feeding my curiosity more than a standard education ever could.

Science Olympiad is an opportunity to excel outside the classroom with non-standard learning and real projects that give you subject-matter expertise in a myriad of topics that you can't get anywhere else.
