September 9, 2014: Upcoming Invitational Tournaments
We have a number of teams interested in hosting invitational tournaments this year. Invitational Tournaments allow
Science Olympiad teams to participate in non-official practice tournaments that do not impact Regional or State advancement
or rankings. We hope that the information below will allow teams to plan ahead in the case that they’re

We had our second annual Science Olympiad Summer Workshop at Caltech on Saturday, July 12, 2014. This was a smaller,
one day version of the Science Olympiad Summer Institute hosted in Phoenix, Arizona each summer. We had 124 attendees

The Science Olympiad tournaments are rigorous academic interscholastic competitions that consist of a series of individual and team events which students prepare for during the year. The competitions follow the format of popular board games, TV shows and athletic games.
These challenging and motivational events are balanced between the various science disciplines of biology, earth science, chemistry, physics, computers and technology. They require knowledge of science facts, concepts, processes, skills and science applications. In addition, during the day there are open house activities that consist of science and mathematics demonstrations, activities and career counseling sessions conducted by professors and scientists at the host institution.
