Sample Events

Air Trajectory

teams will design and create a single device capable of launching projectiles into a target and collect data regarding device parameters and performance.

Electric Vehicle

Teams must design, build and test one vehicle that uses electrical energy as its sole means of propulsion to travel as quickly as possible and stop close to a Target Point.

Bridge Building

Wind Power

Astronomy

Teams will show an understanding of the basic concepts of math and physics relating to stellar evolution and star and planet formation.

Dynamic Planet

Teams will use NGSS science and engineering practices to complete tasks related to physical and geological oceanography.

Wind Power

Teams will build a blade assembly that consists of any kind of propeller/pinwheel/rotor attached to a CD which will be used to capture wind power. Students will also be tested on their knowledge relating to alternative energy.

Events

There are a wide variety of events during the Science Olympiad that span over sciences such as astronomy and biology. the project assessed to each event will differ depending on the science's aspects and the decided limitations on such science by the organization that runs the science olympiad.

The known universe is made up of 50,000,000,000 galaxies. There are between 100,000,000,000 and 1,000,000,000,000 stars in a normal galaxy. In the Milky Way alone there might be as many 100 billion Earth-like planets. Still think you’re alone?
