Events that Motivate

The Science Olympiad program offers highly motivated, detailed tasks that are perfect for encouraging


           critical thinking

                research & literacy skills

and students becoming experts in science or engineering topics!

Standards Alignment

We've done the work of aligning to teaching standards for you!  Click around in our OSO Classroom to the type of standards you want to align with -- the newly adopted Next Generation Science Standards or the Common Core Literacy Standards for Science and the Technical Subjects. 

You can get a book giving detailed event descriptions by contacting Oregon Science Olympiad's Tournament Director, Jean Cavanaugh.  You can also use the new Science Olympiad Mobile Rules App to access event rules:  

B Division Events (Middle School)
C Division Events (High School)
