The Wyoming Science Olympiad (WYSO) is an academic interscholastic competition, designed to increase student interest in science and improve the quality of science education.

The Science Olympiad tournament consists of approximately eighteen separate events per division which may require an individual or groups from each school for competition. Competitive teams will require knowledge obtained in the classroom and/or preparation during the year.

The events are both fun and challenging and often very motivational. The concepts and topics for the events are balanced between Science Facts, Science Concepts, Process Skills, and Technical Application. Although the Science Olympiad is a competitive activity, most events are team competitions which require teamwork and cooperation. The emphasis is on inquiry learning, participation, interaction, and having fun.
