Science Olympiad 2011: New Horizons of Discovery

It might be summer break, but exciting things are still happening at UW Madison.

Just after the end of the semester, the university is pleased to welcome over 7,000 middle and high school students for the annual Science Olympiad Tournament from May 18-21.

Students will compete in a number of science-related competitions, including vehicle and robot design, anatomy and other subject-specific tests, tower design, substance identification, and more. Click here for a full list of Science Olympiad competitions. Competitors will also have the opportunity to experience tours, workshops, and more at a variety of campus locations.

This year's theme is "New Horizons of Discovery," and UW Madison is a great location for such an event. As the welcome to Science Olympiad competitors states, "In 2009, The Chronicle of Higher Education ranked UW-Madison third nationally in the number of university-generated patents. Forbes.com ranked Madison the third best city for science and technology jobs. And The Princeton Review named UW-Madison one of the top 25 entrepreneurial campuses in the nation."

Go Big Read joins the rest of the university in welcoming and congratulating Science Olympiad Students on their exciting scientific accomplishments!

Competitions like "The science olympiad" are very fruitful indeed. They make the young student think creatively so that something new can be done. Today's science always emphasizes the importance of creating something new and if the young ones are made to think about it, it is very appreciating indeed.
