Science Olympiad Openings for Wake and Johnston County NC High Schoolers

It's not too late to become involved with Science Olympiad!  We have room for 10 more homeschooled students from Wake and Johnston counties in grades 9 - 12.  The Raleigh Tournament will be held on Saturday, February 5th at Green Hope High School.  The Science Olympiad is a nationwide competition in science. Students can earn medals competing in many different individual events, and their placement contributes to their team's score. Teams who do well at the Regional Competition continue on to the State Competition (held at NCSU April 29 - 30), and then to the National Competition.

The following events are still open:  Astronomy; Bottle Rocket; Disease Detectives; Dynamic Planet; Ecology; Experimental Design; Microbe Mission; Mission Possible; Mousetrap Vehicle; Mystery Architecture; Optics; Remote Sensing; Sounds of Music; and Write It, Do It.  Please click on this link to find out more about these events (scroll to Division C events):  Students can compete in up to 4 events.

If you would like more information, please contact Teresa LaFond: or 919-460-7365.
