USD Prepares for 34th Annual South Dakota Science Olympiad State Tournament
The Science Olympiad is an international non-profit organization devoted to improving the quality of science education, increasing student interest in science, and providing recognition for outstanding achievement in science education by both students and teachers. Science Olympiad tournaments are rigorous academic interscholastic competitions that consist of a series of individual and team events which students prepare for during the year.
The schools scheduled to participate are: Brookings High School, Dakota Valley Middle School and High School (North Sioux City), Elk Point-Jefferson Middle School and High School, Madison High School, Mickelson Middle School (Brookings), Sacred Heart Middle School (Yankton), Todd County High School (Mission), Vermillion Middle School, and Yankton Middle School and High School. In addition to the ongoing individual challenges and team events, there will be open house activities during the day, including a presentation/activity by Masaba Inc.
The state tournament will involve more than 150 middle school and high school students competing in several science events. The top teams from each division will be invited to the 2018 National Science Olympiad Tournament in May.
For the state tournament, USD faculty, staff, and students organize and judge the events.
