UC Science Olympiad is an undergraduate student organization dedicated to providing accessible S.T.E.M. literacy and challenging students through its annual high school invitational tournament. Founded by SciOly alumni, our initiative is to provide a high-quality competition based on our experiences as former competitors. We also conduct outreach to help local high schools in the Cincinnati areas start their own Science Olympiad chapters. 

All 23 Division C events and competition schedule will be following the national event rules. All exams will be written by Science Olympiad alumni, coaches, and professors. In addition to competing in events, students will have the opportunity to explore the University of Cincinnati campus! (Note: Invitational results will not affect a team's eligibility to qualify for the state/national tournament.)
