What is the Texas Science Olympiad?

The Texas Science Olympiad (TSO) tournament is a challenging academic competition.

Science Olympiad competitions are like academic track meets. Teams compete in a series of events in each division.

  • Division B: Grades 6–9
  • Division C: Grades 9–12

You will prepare and practice during the year.

The competition gives you the chance to use your skills and knowledge in these science and engineering fields:

  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Computers
  • Earth science
  • Physics
  • Technology

The events require knowledge of facts, concepts, processes, skills and science applications.

Winners of the regional competitions go on to compete in state and national Science Olympiads.

What are the events?

We are excited to welcome you in-person to our Trinity River Campus!

  • All divisions will check-in from 8-8:30 a.m. in our Trinity River Campus Rotunda. (Doors are located at the circle driveway.)
  • A break for lunch will occur from 12:15-1:30 p.m.
  • Impound events require that your built apparatus be turned in between 7-7:50 a.m. to the impound.
