Science Olympiad is a nation-wide competition that features 23 different science-related events. Our coach always compares it to a "track team for SCIENCE." Teams of 15 students compete in pairs or groups of 3 in the various events. They can range from building and engineering to study and lab, covering topics from physics and chemistry to biology and mechanical engineering.
Science Olympiad is a program that promotes strong team bonds, leadership, and above all else, fosters a passion for STEM.
At Mason, we compete in Division C at the high school. Our club was established in 2003 - since then, we've competed against national-level teams from all around the country, from California to Texas to here in Ohio.
We're one of the most popular, engaging, and rigorous competitive academic clubs at our school. Out of 60 other teams in the state, we have consistently ranked within the top 4 for 5 years. In addition, we have dominated all other teams within the Southwest Cincinnati region, allowing us to have attended the State Tournament in our division at The Ohio State University for the past 9 years. More recently, we were crowned State Champions at the Ohio State Tournament held on April 28th, 2018, winning the National-Runner-Up title the first time we attended Nationals at Colorado State University on May 19, 2018. In the 2018-2019 season, we qualified for Nationals at Cornell and succeeded in placing 4th overall with 7 placings total. Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, the scheduled 2020 State and National tournaments were cancelled.
