Science Olympiad is a nationally recognized program for enhancing science education and interest in science. Students of all grades in High School compete in activities emphasize doing and applying science. Teams advance from regional to state to national competitions.
Science Olympiad competitions are like academic track meets, consisting of a series of 23 team events in each division Each year, a portion of the events are rotated to reflect the ever-changing nature of genetics, earth science, chemistry, anatomy, physics, geology, mechanical engineering and technology. By combining events from all disciplines, Science Olympiad encourages a wide cross-section of students to get involved. Emphasis is placed on active, hands-on group participation.
SOC Requirements: Students must gain 15 hours per semester of preparation at school. This will be tracked by students on a time log that that can be picked up from Coach Cole. The hours can include meeting time but will still probably not be sufficient preparation for success at competitions.
