Gregory Spiegel

State Director, Missouri Science Olympiad

Greg got his start in Science Olympiad as a grad assistant at the University of South Dakota where he helped Dr. Paul Otto run the South Dakota State Science Olympiad Tournament. After leaving South Dakota, his first job was in Plattsburg, MO at Plattsburg High School. Unlike Plattsburg Middle School, the high school did not have a Science Olympiad team, a fact that Greg changed by starting the school's first Science Olympiad team. In that first year, five students made the trek to the regional tournament and promptly took last place. Despite the ranking, the SO bug bit the students at the high school and with a lot of work (and help from Mrs. S.) the program began to flourish. The high point of the Science Olympiad program at the high school (enrollment of 250) was 2001 when Plattsburg High School earned the right to help represent Missouri at the Science Olympiad National Tournament in Colorado Springs. Following his tenure at Plattsburg, Greg traveled to Oak Park High School where he coached with one of the greats in Missouri, Dr. Lario Yerino. Now retired from public school teaching, Greg took on a second career as a private school teacher and is still happily spending his time as the Science Olympiad state director.

Missouri Science Olympiad regional tournaments are hosted by the following colleges and universities:
