the love of math and science. These STEAM events are well balanced between the various science
disciplines of life science, earth science, and physical science.

Planned Activities: Science Olympiad guidelines, requirements, and activities meet the national science
educational standards and will create interest in math and science. We will practice the 18 events for
the local and regional Science Olympiad competitions (February & March) during our club meetings to
expose and prepare the students for each event.
