General Information and guidelines for establishing your team:


This program will test your students’ abilities in ways that are not often tested in the classroom. The building skills required for some of these events may challenge your students as they have not been challenged before. Some of the Olympiad events will require the application of science that is learned in the classroom to situations that have applications beyond the school walls.


The Science Olympiad is a national program and through the efforts of BJE-NY students in day schools and yeshivas in the New York Metropolitan area are able to participate in their own Olympiad. Information about the National Organization can be found at their web site,, and information about the New York State Science Olympiad can be found at their web site, 


To establish your team:


·        Each team consists of fifteen students, grades 9 – 12, with a maximum of seven (7) 12th graders. (All team members must be registered students at your school.)

·        In addition to the fifteen team members, each school may bring two additional students to serve as “team managers”.

·        Each school is required to provide two coaches on the day of the Olympiad. These coaches will be assigned to run, or assist with running, the events at the Olympiad. In addition, it is highly recommended that at least one other adult (teacher, administrator, or parent) accompany the team to assist with supervision of the team during the day.

·        Only event supervisors and participating students will be permitted to enter event rooms. Visitors and spectators will be permitted to view the testing of open events.
