Science Olympiad

Welcome to Science Olympiad!

Ms. Tuccillo & Ms. Cherney

The Science Olympiad Club at CMS is affiliated with the National Science Olympiad program. Students will prepare to compete in a variety of events that relate to all different fields in science. The club and competition are an exciting way to investigate the science that impacts your everyday life. Students will collaborate and develop an increased knowledge of life sciences, physical science, earth and space sciences, and technology.  If you enjoy friendly competition and want to learn about science in a uniquely hands-on way, join the CMS Science Olympiad Team by joining us on Thursdays after school (the compete meeting schedule will be found in our Google Classroom).
As we near closer to the Regional Competition, meetings will be more frequent.
