Welcome to MY SO, a 9-month, calendar-based set of supports to keep students engaged in Science Olympiad at home, at school and afterschool. Each themed month is connected to a popular Science Olympiad subject like Epidemiology, Space or Structures, and contains free resources like Lesson Plans and STEM Sessions, interviews with leading experts in the field about careers and workforce. One Thursday a month, we'll host two STEM Showdowns, national-level online Science Olympiad tests students take in real time to gauge their knowledge against their peers, complete with prizes (a Top 25 National MY SO Medal and computer sticker!) and a national monthly leaderboard. The tests are perfect practice for Invitational, Regional or State tournaments. MY SO can be used as a standalone or to support any regular Science Olympiad season.
