What Is New York State Science Olympiad?
New York State Science Olympiad (NYSSO) is a non-profit
organization dedicated to improving the quality of science education in grades
5-12, increasing male, female and minority interest in science, creating a
technologically literate workforce and providing recognition for outstanding
achievement in science and technology. These goals are achieved by providing
opportunities for teams of students to participate in 22 regional and state
Science Olympiad tournaments across New York State. NYSSO also promotes the
inclusion of Science Olympiad activities in classroom curricula and provides
teacher training at seminars and an annual coaches’ workshop.
