Welcome to Fast Facts! In this event, teams will fill in a grid of terms that begin with a given letter to match given science categories.
The information below should not be interpreted as an extension of the rules. You can find free online copies of the current rules for download on the 2023 Rules page of the Science Olympiad website. The official rules in the current Rules Manual take precedence. This event is generously supported by Ward's Science.
