The Massachusetts Science Olympiad is an annual state-wide competition that tests a wide range of scientific disciplines and engineering projects in great depth. The winner of the one-day competition qualifies to compete in the the National Science Olympiad in late May. Invitational tournaments around the country are hosted in preparation for the competition.
The competition consists of 21 events. Each school sends a team of 2 members to each event. Due to scheduling, members participate in up to 4 events each. Additionally, 4 trial events that do not count towards the team's ranking are hosted.
Olympiad events events range from paper and pencil tests on hard sciences, to hands on chemistry labs, to building projects.
For South, the State Olympiad is the culminating and most competitive tournament.Team members are selected based on prior dedication and performance throughout the year.
