Modeled after the Olympic games, participating schools field teams of 15 students who compete in 23 science events at invitational, regional, state, and national competitions.  Some events require students to build a model bridge, machine, or protein that they demonstrate.  All events require students to exhibit their knowledge of science in an applied manner.  Goshen College students, faculty, and staff, and members of the local community serve as judges and volunteers.

With more than 200 students participating, three middle school teams and four high school teams advance to the state tournament. An additional middle school and high school team  advance to a wild card tournament to fill any remaining spots at the state tournament.

The annual Science Olympiad began in 1983 and involves more than 12,000 schools nationally. For more information, see the links below or contact David Housman, Professor of Mathematics and Computing, at dhousman@goshen.edu or (574) 535-7405.
