Smart to be Good Program
To continue with Science Olympiad’s charitable giving program, Science Olympiad and Wichita State University are partnering with Generation STEAM. We will have multiple opportunities prior to the tournament for teams to interact with the organization when at WSU. To find out more about Generation STEAM and our partnership goals, please visit the page on this site linked below. Science Olympiad teams, coaches, parents, officials, sponsors and volunteers will be invited to donate any amount. Let’s show our Science Olympiad spirit to those who need a hand. It’s Good to be Smart, and Smart to be Good!
Global Ambassador Team from Japan
In 2009, Board Members Dr. Gerard Putz and Jim Woodland traveled to Tokyo, Japan, to present Science Olympiad concepts to Japanese education officials from the Ministry of Education (MEXT) and the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) at “Science Agora.” A partnership between Science Olympiad and JST was born, founded on a shared passion for making science competition fun and exciting for all students. We look forward to continuing the tradition of hosting the Ambassador Team from Japan as they compete along side their American peers competing on May 20, 2023 in the Science Olympiad National Tournament at WSU.
