Kutztown University will host the 2022 Central Eastern Regional Science Olympiad Thursday, March 17 (snow date March 18). Approximately 400 students from 18 high schools from Berks, Lehigh, Northampton, Northumberland and Schuylkill counties will be competing in 23+ events in a variety of science disciplines such as biology, earth science, chemistry, physics, computers and technology.
The event website has more information about events, rules, schools involved and schedule of events.
In its 38th year nationally and 13th anniversary of the Olympiad at KU, the Science Olympiad is an international nonprofit organization devoted to improving the quality of K-12 science education, creating a passion for learning science and providing recognition for outstanding achievement in science education by both students and teachers. These goals are accomplished through classroom activities, research, professional development workshops and the encouragement of intramural, district, regional, state, national and international tournaments.
The Olympiad is organized by schools at the junior high and senior high levels. Each school sends one team to compete in a variety of events. High school teachers serve as the coaches, judges and coordinators. Olympiad competitions are conducted at four levels- local, regional, state and national. The local competition is designed to prepare students for regional competition. No teams are eliminated in the local competition. At the regional level, the top-ranked teams move on to the state competition.
The Pennsylvania Science Olympiad State Tournament will take place Saturday, April 30, at Penn State Altoona.
