More than 500 students will test their scientific mettle this Saturday, March 5, during the annual Northwest Regional Science Olympiad Tournament, hosted by Seattle Central College. The interactive event runs from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., with competitions starting at 8 a.m. An awards ceremony will follow.

Teams from over 20 middle and high schools have spent weeks and months applying math and science skills to design, build and operate projects. Competitions will be held in 50 different categories, including hydrology, bridge building, electric vehicles, wind power, forensics and anatomy.

“The Science Olympiad and similar events are so valuable for us to develop and nurture the next generation of scientists, mathematicians, and engineers,” said Wendy Rockhill, dean of Science and Math at Seattle Central. “It’s always amazing to see the hard work and extensive learning by the students participating in this event.”

The event’s purpose is to promote STEM (Science, Technology, Education and Math) education, connect activities and learning to the Next Generation Science Standards, as well as cultivate community awareness of programs available to local students.

The competition will take place on the main campus in the Science and Math Building (SAM), Broadway Edison (BE) and Cal Anderson Park. A complete schedule of events and locations will be available at the first floor registration table in the Broadway Edison Building, 1701 Broadway. The event is free and open to the public. Events will be supervised by Seattle Central faculty, staff, students and community volunteers.
