2017 State Science Olympiad hosted at Caltech and Polytechnic SchoolThe 2017 Southern California State Science Olympiad Tournament will be on Saturday, April 8, 2017 hosted by Caltech and Polytechnic School. We are excited to be welcomed back to Caltech for the State Tournament and that Polytechnic School will be joining in co-hosting the event!
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.
