What is Science Olympiad?

Science Olympiad is a state and national organization devoted to increasing student enthusiasm for science through practicing and competing in a variety of scientific team events. The National Science Olympiad organization creates a rule book for 23 Division B (Middle School) events annually. The list of events for 2018-2019 is available here, and the full set of event rules is available here. Schools can send up to two teams of 15 students to competitions.

How do I learn more about Slauson Science Olympiad?
Slauson students from grades 6-8 are invited to join the SSO team, and all interested students and parents are encouraged to attend the Informational Meeting in September. New sixth graders should note that there are exciting additional challenges that middle school Science Olympiad offers beyond WESO. In the 2017-2018 season, Slauson took first place at the state competition and qualified for the national tournament, placing 15th!
