Does your school do Science Olympiad?

If you answer YES to two or more of the following questions, we invite you to start a SCIENCE OLYMPIAD TEAM in your school!

  •  Would you like to see growth in student interest in STEM education?
  • Are you looking for a program for students who have enthusiasm for STEM fields?
  • Would you like to participate in a program aligned with the Michigan Science Standards (which are based on Next Generation Science Standards)?
  • Do you wish to increase recognition for those students?
  • Would you like to increase student achievement and community involvement in STEM education?
  • Do you teach or work with students in grades 6-12?

We invite your school to participate in the 2024 Region 12 Tournament for Michigan Science Olympiad (MSO) hosted by the Regional Math and Science Center to be held Saturday, March 23, 2024, on Grand Valley State University’s Allendale campus. Come join us as we celebrate the continued excellence of this program that draws approximately 25 middle school and 25 high school teams.

Registration Process


The Regional Math and Science Center is offering $250 scholarships to returning middle or high school teams who show need; or $500 scholarships to new middle or high schools interested in starting a Science Olympiad team. To be eligible for the funds for new teams, a school may not have competed at the regional tournament in the last three tournament cycles (2021, 2022, or 2023). Funds may be used to support registration fees, transportation, and team supplies. If you meet this criteria, we invite you to fill out an application for this Team Scholarship Opportunity. Must be completed by November 15, 2023.

Science Olympiad gives students a unique opportunity to explore various fields of science and work as a team. Check out this story of Pablo Trefftz Posada and how Science Olympiad helped to spark his interest in aerospace engineering.
