Science Olympiad is an international non-profit organization working to improve the quality of science education, increase student interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics and provide recognition of outstanding achievement for students and teachers.
Science Olympiad tournaments are rigorous academic competitions balanced between the various science and engineering disciplines of biology, earth science, chemistry, physics, computers and technology. There is also a balance between events requiring knowledge of facts, concepts, processes, skills and science applications. But beyond the technical knowledge needed to participate in Science Olympiad, participants works on teams and must learn important life skills such as team work, cooperation and creative problem solving.

Regional Tournaments in Texas, including the Regional Science Olympiad at Cy-Fair, are qualifying tournaments for teams to advance to State competition. Guidelines for the regional competitions are as follows (from the Texas Science Olympiad)
Student participants are expected to compete in tournament events with an honest effort to follow the rules and the spirit of that competition. The goal of competition is to give one’s best effort while displaying honesty, integrity and sportsmanship. Students, coaches, parents and guests are expected to display courtesy and respect toward Olympiad officials, other teams, and guests of the Olympiad. Failure to show honesty and/or courtesy by a participant, coach, parent, or guest of the team may result in the disqualification of the team from that event, the entire tournament or future tournaments.
Educational Outreach and Women’s Programs realizes that in any competition, differences of opinion about the judges interpretations may occur. It is the policy of the Outreach Programs to support the interpretations and final decisions of the judges’ panel.
