Event Lists and Descriptions

New for 2020-2021, My SO is a month by month set of lessons and supports from the National Science Olympiad. Students enrolled in my SO will have the chance to participate in sessions, webinars, and interviews from experts in the field and take tests in real time to see how they stack up to their peers.

My SO can serve as both a standalone program, and also as a valuable resource to prepare students for the upcoming season.

Be sure to check back for more information about my SO!
