Event Information

Welcome to the 2019 Science Olympiad.   The official list of competitive events has been announced!  See also the new  Code of Ethics & General Rules.

There are many resources available to help your event teams prepare.  A good place to start is the National Science Olympiad website, for either Division B events (Middle School) or Division C events (High School).  Don’t forget to check out the student-run Science Olympiad wiki.  Links to these and other valuable resources are in the footer below.

Michigan Science Olympiad will post additional event specific material here as it becomes available:


Herpetology Lists (Both State and National lists will be used)

Source Code (Michigan) 2018 – 2019 Trial Event
Developed by Michigan Science Olympiad, Source Code is a programming event that challenges students to solve problems by reading and writing code. This is an excellent opportunity for students to explore the vast field of computer science and learn skills that are currently used in many technology related industries.

Contact your regional director or invitational organizer to inquire if this event will be run at a specific tournament. Source Code will be run as a trial event in Division C at the 2019 Michigan State Tournament. (Michigan Science Olympiad has run this event in  2016, 2017 and 2018.)

2019 rules are available below. A sample test with answers is also linked in a zip file. Additional tests can be found here on GitHub.
