New Jersey Science Olympiad


New Jersey Science Olympiad, which is open to elementary, middle, and high school students, has been on the leading edge of educational innovations since 1993. These innovations include high academic standards; demonstration of skills through performance testing; learning through hands-on, minds-on activities; cooperative learning through events that require teamwork; improved self-concept through success in achieving high standards; and making applications and connections to the real world.

New Jersey Science Olympiad events are closely aligned with Next Generation Science Standards and include strong components for problem solving, critical thinking, and use of technology. Science Olympiad also portrays the close relationship between teaching and assessment. Assessment tasks are developmentally appropriate for young children, and include recognition of students' physical skills and cognitive abilities.

The members of the New Jersey Science Olympiad Committee invite you and your district to participate in Science Olympiad, the foremost academic competition in New Jersey.
