Science Olympiad is an international nonprofit organization devoted to improving the quality of science education, increasing student interest in science and providing recognition for outstanding achievement in science education by both students and teachers. These goals are accomplished through various means including regional, state and national tournaments. Science Olympiad tournaments are rigorous academic competitions that consist of a series of team events which students prepare for during the year. These events are well balanced between the various science disciplines of biology, earth science, chemistry, physics and technology. There is also a balance between events requiring knowledge of science concepts, process skills and science applications. Homeschool Science Colorado is a homeschool group organized to participate in Science Olympiad tournaments with competitive teams.
Science Olympiad has two competitive levels: Division B for 6-9th graders, and Division C for 9-12th graders. We have two core teams, one in each division: B1 and C1, which are teams that require a high level of commitment from the students and their families. These teams consistently place among the highest rankings at the state level. If interest and numbers allow, each year we evaluate the option of additional teams. These teams are based on interest level and are less competitive than our core teams.
