Welcome! Indiana Science Olympiad (INSO) is a nonprofit organization devoted to improving the quality of science education, increasing student interest in science and providing recognition for outstanding achievement by students in grades 6-12. We encourage middle (division B) and high school (division C) students to succeed in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Indiana tournaments strive to run all 23 competitions in both division B and C.
Our goals are accomplished through the dedication of our executive board, advisory committee, Indiana teachers, higher education institutions & their faculty and students who organize classroom activities, research, after school science clubs, and competitive tournaments. The main focus of the competition is to elevate science education and learning to the level of enthusiasm and support that is normally reserved only for varsity sports programs.
Did you know that Science Olympiad is the PREMIER NATIONAL SCIENCE COMPETITION for middle and high school students? It involves over three MILLION students across the nation, and is growing. Critical thinking and teamwork are essential if you want to succeed. Schools field teams of fifteen students who collaborate in knowledge, laboratory, and engineering events. Science Olympiad goes beyond the basics and teaches students what it really means to be a scientist or to be an engineer.
