34th Annual San Joaquin County Science Olympiad Division B/C

Mountain House High School Blue team and Bethany Elementary School Red team take first place

More than 750 San Joaquin County students participated in the 34th Annual San Joaquin County Science Olympiad Competition for Division B (middle school) and Division C (high school) at Ronald E. McNair High School in Stockton, Saturday, March 7. In all, 26 Division B teams and 21 Division C teams from throughout the county participated in the one-day competition. Students received medals and the top-scoring teams were awarded trophies during a ceremony following the competition.

Science Olympiad tournaments are rigorous academic interscholastic competitions that consist of a series of individual and team events for which students prepare during the year. The competitions follow the format of popular board games, TV shows, and athletic games. These challenging and motivational events are well balanced between the various science disciplines of biology, earth science, chemistry, physics, computers, and technology. There is a balance between events requiring knowledge of science facts, concepts, processes, skills, and science applications.
