To the right are the events for the 2017-2018 Bay Area Regional Science Olympiad. Teams will sign up for an event in the order that their registration is completed. Once a school picks an event, its name will be next to the event. Below is the list of teams who are up next for picking their event.
Note: Middle school should pick a high school event and high school should pick a middle school event
