Wisconsin Science Olympiad is fortunate to be able to partner with the 3M Foundation to expand the involvement of Wisconsin High-Need schools in Science Olympiad. The program offers $1000 to new schools to launch Science Olympiad teams who will partner with experienced Science Olympiad coach mentors. The teams will have the opportunity to participate in regional science olympiad tournaments leading to the State Tournament and the National Tournament at UW-Stout in 2016. The participating teams will be included in many of the activities associated with the exciting National Science Olympiad Tournament. The program is open to middle school and high school teams.
