Science Olympiad Medal WinnersMaysville Community & Technical College, Maysville Campus hosts the Regional Science Olympiad for middle and high school students each year. Our Regional Olympiad is open to all public and private schools in Bath, Boone, Boyd, Bracken, Campbell, Carter, Elliot, Fleming, Gallatin, Grant, Greenup, Harrison, Kenton, Lewis, Mason, Menifee, Nicholas, Owen, Pendleton, Robertson, and Rowan counties.

Science Olympiad's goal is to create a passion for learning science by supporting elementary and secondary Science Olympiad tournaments at building, district, county, state, and national levels with an emphasis on teamwork and a commitment to excellence. Boyd County High School Students

To improve the quality of K-12 science education throughout the nation by changing the way science is perceived and the way it is taught (with an emphasis on problem solving and hands-on, minds-on constructivist learning practices). This goal is accomplished through in-depth core curriculum training workshops and the distribution of curriculum materials.

MSU Craft AcademyTo celebrate and recognize the outstanding achievement of both students and teachers in the areas of science and technology by awarding thousands of certificates, medals, trophies, and scholarships.

To promote partnerships among community, businesses, industry, government, and education.

Almost all events in the Olympiad involve teamwork, group planning and cooperation. The emphasis is on advancing learning in Science through active, hands-on, minds-on activities that facilitate application and connection of concepts to the "Real World." Students are not tested merely on what knowledge they possess, rather, the competition demands that students demonstrate that they can utilize the knowledge that they have accumulated. In other words, this tournament is really a competition consisting of performance-based activities. This is very much in keeping with the National Science Education Standard as evidenced by the enclosed Science Olympiad & National Science Education Standards.

RSO TrophiesEach school may enter a team (or teams) of up to 15 students to compete in the various events for points. Olympic-style gold, silver and bronze medals are awarded to the first, second and third place competitors in each event. Overall championship trophies will be awarded to the middle school and high school teams whose members compile the most points during the Regional Olympiad. The overall winning teams in both the middle school and high school divisions, as well as first place finishers in each event at the regional tournament will qualify to advance to the state competition at Western Kentucky University.
