    Be a Scientist:  Science Olympiad

    I'm so glad that you have visited this page to learn more about Science Olympiad.  Our team here at Park Forest Middle School has a history of success at the regional and state tournaments.  To learn more, contact Mr. McAninch at sdm11@scasd.org

    Teams of 15 students are challenged by 23 STEM related events that span biology, earth science, chemistry, physics, engineering, and inquiry. 

    Students usually work in pairs building devices for testing at tournaments, studying for core knowledge challenges, and preparing for rigorous hands-on lab experiments. All this work prepares them for working as a team in a future STEM career.

     Events are activities in which pairs of students (or in a few cases groups of three) prepare to compete against students from other teams. Each September, a new set of events is defined by rules that are made available free of charge at www.soinc.org. The rules provide the details that students need to know to understand what each event is about. There are a few kinds of events. 





    In Science Olympiad, we want to learn some science, have a lot of fun, and win some medals.
