Science Olympiad competitions are like academic track meets, consisting of a series of 23 events in two divisions: Division B (middle school) and Division C (high school).

Science Olympiad tournaments allow students to showcase their individual achievements, while also building their teamwork, planning, and cooperation skills. Much like traditional athletic competitions, Science Olympiad requires preparation, commitment, coaching, and practice throughout the year.

Ohio has eight regional tournaments across the state, from which teams vie for the opportunity to advance to the state tournament.
