ECU North Carolina Science Olympiad

What is Science Olympiad?

Science Olympiad is a national non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of K-12 science education, increasing male, female and minority interest in science, creating a technologically-literate workforce and providing recognition for outstanding achievement by both students and teachers. These goals are achieved by participating in Science Olympiad tournaments and non-competitive events, incorporating Science Olympiad into classroom curriculum and attending teacher training institutes.

Vision: Our vision is to increase K-12 student and teacher participation in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).

Mission: Our mission is to host exciting competitive tournaments and professional development workshops that showcase innovative STEM content to students and teachers throughout the United States.

Science Olympiad is committed to:
  • Developing hands-on, standards-aligned STEM content with industry and education partners
  • Providing volunteers and mentors a platform to share subject-matter expertise in relevant STEM topic areas
  • Creating opportunities for student teamwork, problem solving and collaboration
  • Recognizing outstanding achievement by students and teachers
  • Encouraging male, female and minority students to enroll in STEM courses
  • Building a strong STEM workforce

Greenville Regional Tournament History


Over the years, the Science Olympiad has grown throughout the state of North Carolina. In order for travel to be most convenient for as many schools as possible we have divided the 100 counties in North Carolina into numerous Regional Sites. Each of these Regions has its own Director(s), and each Region holds a separate tournament.

Over 1,000 middle school and high school students from Beaufort, Bertie, Camden, Chowan, Currituck, Dare, Gates, Hertford, Hyde, Martin, Pasquotank, Perquimans, Pitt, Tyrrell, Washington, Edgecombe, Halifax, Nash, and Northampton counties will compete in the annual Greenville Regional Science Olympiad from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, February 22nd, on the campus of East Carolina University. Over 50 middle and high school teams will compete in 46 activities that will test their skills and knowledge of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

The fun activities range from launching bottle rockets and building helicopter or planes to examining a “crime scene” and identifying rocks and minerals. The ECU Greenville Science Olympiad will be hosted by the Center for STEM Education at East Carolina University.

ECU faculty and students along with community volunteers have designed events that will produce scores that will determine multiple medal winners with trophies awarded to the top middle and high schools in each division. Top finishers will qualify to compete at the State Tournament held in Raleigh at N.C. State University on April 24-25, 2020. The top teams at the state tournament will represent the state of North Carolina at the National Science Olympiad Tournament at North Carolina State University the weekend of May 16, 2020.

NCSO activities are funded in part by BASF, Time Warner Cable’s Connect-a-Million-Minds initiative and SAS Institute, Inc. The Greenville Regional event is facilitated with the help of volunteers from WNCT – TV, NC BioNetwork, Pitt County Schools, ECU’s Brody School of Medicine, ECU’s Department of Chemistry, ECU’s Department of Geology, ECU’s College of Engineering and Technology ECU’s Department of Mathematics, Science, Instructional Technology Education, and ECU Department of Physics.

North Carolina Science Olympiad

North Carolina Science Olympiad (NCSO) is a nonprofit organization[1] with the mission to attract and retain the pool of K-12 students entering science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) degrees and careers in North Carolina.[2][3] Every year NCSO hosts tournaments on university, community college, and public school campuses across the state. These tournaments are rigorous academic interscholastic competitions that consist of a series of different hands-on, interactive, challenging and inquiry-based events that are well balanced between the various disciplines of biology, earth science, environmental science, chemistry, physics, engineering and technology. NCSO is housed at The Science House[4] at NC State University.

History[edit]

The first recorded Science Olympiad was held on Saturday, November 23, 1974 at St. Andrews Presbyterian College in Laurinburg, North Carolina. Dr. Donald Barnes and Dr. David Wetmore were the originators of this event. Fifteen schools from North and South Carolina participated in this event. This Olympiad was a day-long affair, with competitions and demonstrations for high school students in the areas of biology, chemistry, and physics. There were four event periods during this day, and each event period had one fun event (like beaker race or paper airplane), one demonstration (like glassblowing and holography), and one serious event (like periodic table quiz or Science Bowl). An article was published in the Journal of Chemical Education in January 1978 documenting the success of recruiting students through Science Olympiad.[5] St. Andrews continues to host a Science Olympiad tournament to this day.[6]

Mr. John C. "Jack" Cairns was a teacher at Dover High School in Delaware in the 1970s when he learned about Science Olympiad taking place in North Carolina. He shared this information with Dr. Douglas R. Macbeth, the Delaware State Science Supervisor. Mr. Cairns was appointed to a steering committee to organize the first Olympiad in Delaware which took place at Delaware State University in the Spring of 1977.

By 1982, word about Science Olympiad continued to spread, and caught the attention of Dr. Gerard Putz in Macomb County, Michigan. Dr. Putz invited Mr. Cairns to share the success of the Delaware Science Olympiad with Macomb County. As a result, Michigan hosted their first two tournaments in 1983 and 1984[7] while at the same time Delaware hosted eight similar tournaments.[8] Dr. Putz and Mr. Cairns then decided to share the program with the rest of the nation.[9]

  1. ^Competition was hosted by NC State University but held virtually.

Competition[edit]

  • Score is calculated by giving 1 point for a first-place finish, 2 points for a second-place finish, etc.
  • In final events standings, (D) denotes defending champions.

NCSO competitions are run in a style similar to a track meet. Each competitor has individual events that they compete in, instead of shot put and javelin, a competitor would participate in Forensics[10] and Tower Building.[11] Competitors receive individual rankings in each individual event they compete in, and at the end of the day all the individual event rankings are added together to get the total Team Score. Competitors are able to earn medals in their individual events, and teams can also win an overall trophy for their school.

Science Olympiad tournaments have 4 different time periods (and walk-in time periods) when events are held. Due to the number of teams at the state tournament (118 division C teams at the 2015 tournament), the events are instead divided into 6 time periods of 70 minutes. Most events allow teams of 2 students to compete (some events allow 3).

Regional Tournament host sites include Campbell University,[12]Catawba Valley Community College, Cumberland County Schools, East Carolina University, Fayetteville Technical Community College, Green Hope High School, Guilford County Schools, Lenoir Community College,[13]Lenoir-Rhyne University, St. Andrews University, New Hanover County Schools, Raleigh Charter High School, UNC-Asheville, UNC-Charlotte, UNC-Greensboro,[14] and UNC-Wilmington. The North Carolina State Tournament is hosted at NC State University each April.[15] The top scoring teams at the state level advance to the national competition, held every May.[16] State tournament results are seen below.[17]

Events[edit]

The competitive events[18] of NCSO align with the North Carolina Standard Course of Study[19] as well as the National Science Education Standards. The events are designed to enhance and strengthen both science content and process skills. Every year NCSO replaces some of the events issued by the National Science Olympiad organization[20] with events that are of local interest to NC.[21] The 18 elementary, 23 middle, and 23 high school events for each competitive year are announced in early Fall. This is followed by a series of workshops as competitors prepare for their events.[22][23] Tournaments take place in the Spring, starting with school wide and Regional tournaments, advancing through State and National Tournaments.[24][25] In the Summer camps are offered across NC.

The 64 events of NCSO range from engineering events like Mystery Architecture, Towers and Helicopters to content events such as Microbe Mission, Forensics, and Ecology. The events change each year as new topics are rotated in and old topics rotate out, to ensure every part of curriculum is covered.

Participation[edit]

In 2011, more than 600 K-12 schools representing over 10,000 students and 65 counties in North Carolina participated in North Carolina Science Olympiad activities. This number continues to grow each year.

Teams may be organized by any charter school, home school group, private or public school. Schools may have as many teams as they wish, the first team from a school is considered the Varsity team and all other teams are Junior Varsity teams. Teams are overseen by a coach.

Divisions[edit]

Division A2 encompasses grades 3-6, Division B involves grades 6-9, and Division C involves grades 9-12. Teams at all three levels consist of eighteen competitors each in NC.

The National tournament team consists of up to fifteen competitors.
