Science Olympiad is an international nonprofit organization devoted to improving the quality of science education, increasing student interest in science, and recognizing outstanding achievement in science education by both students and teachers. Science Olympiad tournaments are academic competitions balanced between biology, earth science, chemistry, physics, and technology. There is also a balance between events requiring knowledge of science concepts and science applications.
