What is Science Olympiad? Science Olympiad is a national non-profit organization that is dedicated to improving science education, increasing interest in science, and providing recognition for outstanding academic achievement. It is also designed to encourage and support new and creative ways for classroom teachers to explore science curriculum. Science Olympiad is a fun, hands-on way to make science exciting and foster a passion for the subject, while promoting teamwork, cooperation, and problem solving skills. This is the sixth year that RiTechA will have a team represented in the SJCOE Competition.
Practices will be held on Wednesday (12:00-1:00) and Fridays (3:00-4:00) in Room 19.
