What is Science Olympiad? Science Olympiad is an international non-profit organization devoted to improving the quality of science education and increasing student interest in science. During the shortened 2019-2020 season, the Varisty LMS Science Olympiad Team was the regional champion and our Junior Varisty Team Placed Third. Unfortunately, the state and national tournaments were cancelled.
What We Do: Liberty's teams prepare for 23 different events pertaining to various scientific disciplines, including earth science, biology, chemistry, physics, and engineering. Students do not need to enroll in the course in order to be on the team.
Our teams will participate in 2-3 Invitational tournaments in the fall and winter before competing in the regional tournament at UAH. The regional tournament is generally in February/March. The top four teams at regionals will qualify for the state competition. The state competition is generally held at Auburn University at the end of March.
Who Can Join? All students grades 6-8. It is a great place to explore new avenues in science and build relationships with fellow students who have a passion for science.
