LASA Science Olympiad
Welcome to the website of the Science Olympiad Club at the Liberal Arts and Science Academy (LASA) in Austin, Texas!
Established in 2005, we have finished in the top 3 at State every year, and placed as high as 3rd in the nation.
Thanks for your interest, and if you're a current or prospective LASA student, we hope to see you around!
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.
The captains for the 2019-2020 season are:
- Samuel Tian
- Richard Liu
- Lily Yeazell
- Yash Patil
If you have any questions, find one of us at school or email the SciO account.
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!
