Family Science Olympiad

Join the fun as Discovery Place Science celebrates science, teamwork and STEM during our Family Science Olympiad event. In partnership with the North Carolina Science Olympiad, families of all ages are welcome to try science challenges that inspire teamwork, shape critical thinking skills, inspire innovation and introduce families to STEM topics. Participants can solve a crime using science clues, explore prehistoric fossils, predict weather patterns, unearth facts about earthquakes and volcanoes, and much more.

As part of Educator Saturdays, all educators and Science Olympiad coaches who present their school ID or NCDNPE homeschool certificate will receive free admission for them plus one guest.

The Science Olympiad is a national competition that is dedicated to improving the quality of K-12 science education, increasing student interest in science, creating a technologically literate workforce and providing recognition for outstanding achievement by both students and teachers. Family Days are fun, non-competitive challenges that introduce students, parents, teachers and coaches to Science Olympiad topics and processes in preparation for official competitions
