Science Olympiad

Science Olympiad is a national non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of K-12 science education, increasing interest in science, creating a technologically-literate workforce and providing recognition for outstanding achievement by both students and teachers. These goals are achieved by participating in Science Olympiad tournaments and non-competitive events, incorporating Science Olympiad into classroom curriculum and attending teacher training institutes.

You can donate here!

Every year we travel to competitions in and out of Texas, and to prepare for these competitions we need materials for build devices and textbooks to study.

In order to raise money for travel, hotel, and material expenses, we hold a fundraiser every December where we give out free mistletoe and ask for small donations. If you'd like to come out, we appreciate your support!
