Where are the bathrooms?

One of the most common questions that is posed at Registration/Information is, "Where are the Bathrooms?" This may be because many school campuses have separate bathroom buildings and students are looking for such a building on campus at the college.

Bathrooms are located throughout campus, in all of the event buildings. A little exploring will find them.

A curious complication is the presence of a number of Porta-potties that are brought in for the Science Olympiad. These facilities are NOT the only toilet facilities on campus. Please help your students, volunteers, etc. understand that while the Porta-potties are available, there are facilities available all around campus.

Young Scientists Challenge for Division B Students

For the eighth year, Science Olympiad’s partner, Discovery Education, would like to invite all Division B teams to submit science-related videos in the Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge (YSC).

The top award is $25,000, plus trips to Costa Rica and other benefits, including a special prize pack for any Science Olympiad finalists. In past years, Science Olympiad has qualified more than 33 semifinalists and 15 finalists in the YSC. Last year’s overall winner, Peyton Robertson from Florida, was a Science Olympiad alumnus.
