Science Olympiad
Advisor: Mr. Ward amd Mrs. Randazzo


The Science Olympiad is a national organization whose goal is to foster students who are interested in the areas of science and technology. The group organizes competitive tournaments at the regional, state, and national level in which students demonstrate their knowledge and skill in a variety of events representing the different content areas of science.  Example events include: Reptiles & Amphibians, Fossils, Science Crime Busters, and Robo-Cross.

The club builds off of the Science Olympiad program which takes place at the elementary school level.  South has competed in the middle school Science Olympiad for the past number years and recently began a high school team as interest has grown.  Students in Grades 7 through 9 can compete in the middle school Science Olympiad while students in Grade 10 through 12 can compete in the high school Olympiad.

The middle school team has represented South well in past tournaments.  The team has advanced past the regional level of competition each year since its inception.  Its highest ranking to date came in 2008 when the team placed seventh overall in the state of New Jersey.

The Science Olympiad Team meets from mid-October till the end of the tournament season (usually mid-March) with practices times varying on the event and the individual.
