Science Olympiad

Students compete in the 2013 state Science Olympiad

Science Olympiad is an annual competition for middle and high school students that gets students involved in science, technology, engineering and math. Students compete in more than 20 applied and hands-on events that require teamwork, problem-solving skills and scientific knowledge.

Science Olympiad is hosted at the University by MESA in collaboration with the University, the College of Engineering, the College of Science and the College of Agriculture, Biotechnology and Natural Resources.

The 2015 Northern Nevada Regional Science Olympiad will be hosted at the University of Nevada on Saturday, February 7th 2015 in collaboration with Northern Nevada MESA, the College of Engineering, the College of Science and the College of Agriculture, Biotechnology and Natural Resources.

We are currently recruiting event supervisors and general volunteers for the competition, as well as tutors who would be interested in helping the 7th - 12th grade students prepare.
