Membership will cost $TBD for the year. This includes local, state, and national membership along with a copy of the event manual. You may not participate at the regional, state, or national level without membership. Each school may register a maximum of two teams. Each team is required to pay the membership fee. Please see the links page for registration forms and due dates.


In your preparations for the Olympiad, start lining up your volunteer help early so you will be able to provide us those names as soon as possible. We will, as in the past, need a minimum of two volunteers from each participating team to support the event coordinators. This is very crucial to the success of the event. Submission of the registration form and registration fee indicates that you and your school are aware of the responsibility to provide two volunteers to cover specific events on the day of the regional Science Olympiad. During one of the scheduled meetings we will discuss the requirements and responsibilities of the volunteers and consequences for teams who do not provide the adequate number of volunteers by the due date. If you are a winning team at the Sacramento Regional Science Olympiad, your school will also be responsible for providing volunteers for the NorCal State Science Olympiad.

State Competition

The 2012 NorCal State Olympiad competition is scheduled to be held at CSU, Stanislaus in Turlock, CA on April 1, 2017. The NorCal State Science Olympiad competition is a cooperative effort of the six regions in the Northern California Olympiad area. Visit the NorCal Science Olympiad website for more information.
