Science Olympiad curriculum reflects scientific current events


Students in biology dissect frogs and learn about both anatomy and physiological processes. Students in chemistry experiment with the addition of a base that turns a solution pink. Students in physics test out their theories by dropping eggs. Each of these experiments are practical applications of ideas students have amassed throughout classes and science club meetings. Science Olympiad is no exception: as each member learns material about their event, they also see how concepts apply in science. Officers of Science Olympiad explain how some of the curriculum they learn is manifested in the real scientific community.
