Welcome to Mesa Robles Science Olympiad!  


At Mesa Robles, we strive to encourage all students to be scientists and explore their world.  Students who participated in Mesa Science Olympiad have gone on to be architects, environmentalists, researchers, doctors, and people who make a positive impact on our world.  We invite you to try out for the Mesa Robles Science Olympiad Team.

Try-Outs for the 2020 season has begun.  Try-outs are an eight-week process so you have ample opportunity to show progress in your events, team spirit, collaboration, and cooperation.  If you are interested in being a part of the Mesa Robles Science Olympiad team for 2020, please see Mr. N  or Ms. Collins as soon as possible.

     Schools will have one or more event assignments.  Please have your event supervisors report to the Tournament Headquarters on the day of the tournament for further instruction.

8.  Remember tournament policies and ground rules.

     Just in case anyone needs a refresher:

  • Medals will be awarded to the top six teams in each event.  Trophies will be awarded to the top six teams overall.
  • An arbitration committee will be on hand to resolve disputes between event supervisors and competing teams.  In the event of a conflict, both parties need to provide a brief statement to the arbitration committee in writing.  The committee will have the final decision-making authority on the matter.
  • Students are expected to follow all rules and display integrity, honesty, and sportsmanship while competing.
  • Photography/videography of other teams and/or their devices is not permitted without the express permission of the team being photographed. Teams in violation of this protocol may be disqualified from the event and/or tournament.
  • Please do your part to keep the campus clean by placing all trash in trash receptacles.  In addition, we ask that event proctors keep rooms tidy, clean, and relatively untouched, as we would like to keep our teachers happy!
