NATIONAL SCIENCE OLYMPIAD
We invite you to join us to celebrate the innovative minds of STEM at the 2021 National Science Olympiad Tournament at ASU.
2021 National Tournament at Arizona State University
As the 2021 Science Olympiad National Tournament approaches, Arizona State University has been diligently planning to ensure this year’s tournament is not only safe and exciting but is one that will allow us to showcase the innovation of our university. As a result, we have decided to move the conference to a virtual format.
For six consecutive years, Arizona State University has been recognized by the U.S. News & World Report as the most innovative school in the nation. Part of that charge is due to ASU’s ability to create ways for students to get the most out of their time at the university, whether it’s using technology to solve the world’s big problems or providing unique research and funding opportunities, innovation is at the heart of what we do at ASU. With that in mind, the theme for the 2021 Science Olympiad National Tournament will be ‘innovation.’
This virtual format allows us to provide participants with a weeklong schedule of events beginning on the 17th of May rather than two short days. These programs will feature an introduction and access to resources at ASU including:
1. Virtual tours to all four campuses.
2. me3 an online interactive major and career quiz that helps students identify a potential major, and possible career, based on their interests.
3. Guest lectures from ASU professors.
4. Student panels from STEAM students.
5. College going information including scholarships and the social and emotional well-being of the students and the communities they serve.
6. Many others.
We will be working closely with Science Olympiad to create an event slate and schedule for the 120 competing teams as well as the list of Tournament Week activities in a timely manner.
While the 2021 Science Olympiad National Tournament will look and feel a little different, we are confident in the experience we can provide and look forward to each state’s Science Olympiad champions showcasing their knowledge, creativity, and pursuit of scientific excellence just like they have done since 1985.
