UCF Hosts National Science Olympiad


Mike McKee, Associate Director of CREOL’s Undergraduate Program, was the Co-Director for the 2014 National Science Olympiad Tournament held at UCF May 16 and 17, 2014.

For the past 30 years, Science Olympiad has led a revolution in science education. What began as a grassroots assembly of science teachers is now one of the premiere science competitions in the nation, providing rigorous, standards-based challenges to nearly 7,000 teams in 50 states. Science Olympiad's ever-changing line-up of events in all STEM disciplines exposes students to practicing scientists and career choices, and energizes classroom teachers with a dynamic content experience.

See Orlando Sentinel's story titled "Top minds compete in National Science Olympiad at UCF" and the Huffington Post's story titled "National Science Olympiad at UCF Orlando."

CREOL helped sponsor the event and used the opportunity to promote our Bachelor of Science in Photonic Science and Engineering program.
