What is Science Olympiad?
Science Olympiad is a nation-wide competition where teams of 15 students representing their school work throughout the year to build, study, and experiment. There are invitational competitions and a regional, state, and national level competition near the end of the school year, where students show off what they've learned all year by competing with other schools. There are 23 events to compete in, and each event requires 2-3 students to represent the entire team. The team who does best overall in all 23 events wins the competition. Events can cover topics across physics, chemistry, biology, and earth science, and some may ask students to build a device.
We have been a Science Olympiad team since 1987. Our team is very active in helping to coach Slauson Middle School's Science Olympiad, and helped them get to Nationals in 2018, 2019, 2021, and 2022.
In 2019, we made it to Nationals for the first time since 1994 with the hard work of our team and lots of help from parents, teachers, and coaches. Surprising everyone, we placed 5th overall at Nationals! Since then, we've also made Nationals in 2021 and 2023.
We're one of the most engaging, rewarding, and successful academic teams at Pioneer. We've traveled to Cornell in New York and Wichita State University in Kansas. We're a group of students that are passionate about STEM, and a close-knit community.
