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. Last year (22-23) we attended 3 tournaments out-of-state and took home 1st at the Chatthoochee High School Invitational in GA, 2nd place at the Dodgen/Walton Invitational in GA, and 2nd place at the Friendship Christian School Invitational in TN. We also went to the University of Alabama where we won Regionals and later went to Auburn University where we won State! We competed in Kansas for Nationals and came in 36th place but were in the top 20 in 4 events and we even scored 7th place in Can't Judge a Powder!!
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. 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.
