Prepare for OH-SO by Competing in Invitational Tournaments

Science Olympiad Invitational Tournaments do not impact regional or state advancement or rankings, so they are great practice for your team as preparation for teams that compete in regional, state or national tournaments. Some schools use them as as tryouts for team members.

Across the country, many campuses and schools host these events to give teams a chance to perfect their devices and get a feel for the difficulty level of tests and labs. While participation in Science Olympiad Invitational Tournaments is optional and in most cases requires a separate event fee collected by each Invitational Director, all school teams participating in a Science Olympiad Invitational Tournament must first be a registered member of Ohio's Science Olympiad program.
