What is Science Olympiad?

In Science Olympiad Club, students have the opportunity to learn more about a science topic they are interested in, or engineer a contraption to be used for competition in the annual Regional Science Olympiad Competition.  There are 23 team events to choose from.


Science Olympiad also offers students an incredible opportunity to observe, experience, and explore a STEM career, as they are mentored by a professional expert, scientist and/or engineer (most are employees of Viasat Global Communications Company in Carlsbad).


Science Olympiad is provided by a partnership between the Carlsbad Educational Foundation (CEF), and local science & engineering partner, Viasat. Please visit for more information.


Please email Mrs. Tsoi at if you have any questions regarding Science Olympiad Club.
