Science Olympiad Regional Tournament

Goshen College will not host a Science Olympiad regional tournament during the 2024-25 academic year.  We wish all teams the best as they compete at other locations.

Teams from area middle and high schools will gather on the Goshen College campus on Saturday, February 3, 2024 to compete in a Science Olympiad Regional Tournament.

Participating schools field teams of up to 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, vehicle, or plane 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.

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 or (574) 535-7405 or Jody Saylor, Associate Professor of Biology, at or (574) 535-7306.
