Science Olympiad National Tournament Follow Up

Great to see so many of you at the 2015 Science Olympiad National Tournament at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln — the committee did a fantastic job and we couldn’t be prouder! All your teams were absolutely incredible, and the kids had such a great time.

Full results and Top 6 places for each event posted:

For both Divisions B and C, Top 6 Team photos, action shots and Medal Winners photos posted :

Archived live stream of Opening and Division B and C Awards Ceremonies posted:

A quick scan of the Top 6 Medalists in each Division reveals:

Division B medal winners were 57% male, 43% female
Division C medal winners were 71% male, 29% female

Both of those beat national averages of women in STEM, and the percentage of girls on teams is even higher that those percentages for the Top 6 places.

39 of our 49 state organizations came away with a Top 6 medal, Top 10 Placement, or one of the special prizes like scholarships, the Spirit Award, DuPont Team Enterprise Award, Coaching Excellence Award, STEM Expo iPad winner and the ACE Hardware Science Star contest winner. (2015NatTournPrizeWINNERS) That’s awesome!!
