The University of Central Oklahoma
The Oklahoma Science Olympiad State Tournament
UCO plays host once again to the Science Olympiad State Tournament. Teams representing public and private middle and high schools from across Oklahoma will engage in competition over the range of 46 STEM events in 2 divisions. The individual tournament events are produced by Event Supervisors who are themselves engaged in STEM professions or who are STEM undergraduate and graduate students at UCO, OSU and OU. The STEM professionals include professors and researchers at the University of Oklahoma Health Science Center, the University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State University, Rose State College, Oklahoma Mesonet, and the University of Central Oklahoma.
For the past 33 years, Science Olympiad has led a revolution in science education. What began as a grassroots assembly of science teachers is now one of the premier science competitions in the nation, providing rigorous, standards-based challenges to 7,600 teams in 50 states. Science Olympiad’s ever-changing line-up of events in all STEM disciplines exposes students to practicing scientists and career choices, and energizes classroom teachers with a dynamic content experience.
The March 25th tournament will identify the Middle School team and the High School team that will each represent Oklahoma in the National Science Olympiad Tournament at Wright State University in May.
