    To improve the quality of K-12 science education throughout the nation by changing the way science is perceived and the way it is taught (with an emphasis on problem-solving and hands-on, minds-on constructivist learning practices). This goal is accomplished through in-depth core curriculum training workshops and the distribution of curriculum materials to thousands of teachers.

    To celebrate and recognize the outstanding achievement of both students and teachers in the areas of science and technology by awarding thousands of certificates, medals, trophies, and scholarships.

    To promote partnerships among the community, businesses, industry, government, and education.

    The Specific Purposes Of Science Olympiad Tournaments Are:

    To bring science to life, to show how science works, to emphasize problem-solving aspects of science and the understanding of science concepts.

    To develop teamwork and cooperative learning strategies among students.

    To make science education more exciting, which will encourage more students to enroll in science courses and engage in other science activities like science reading, fairs, meetings, and field trips.

    To promote high levels of achievement and a commitment to excellence, to demonstrate that American students can perform at levels that surpass expectations of even practicing scientists and engineers.

    To attract more students, particularly females and minorities to professional and technical careers in science, technology, and science teaching.
