Science Olympiad is the nation’s most exciting K-12 STEM-related competition. North Central Missouri College hosts the region’s yearly high school level competition. Science Olympiad is a national non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of K-12 STEM education, increasing student interest in science, creating a technologically literate workforce, and providing recognition for outstanding achievement by both students and teachers. These goals are achieved by participating in Science Olympiad tournaments, incorporating Science Olympiad into classroom curriculum and attending professional development workshops. (www.soinc.org)
