Tournament Information

The third annual Gopher Science Olympiad Invitational will be taking place January 7, 2017 on the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities campus in Minneapolis, MN. As the only Division B invitational tournament in Minnesota, we believe our tournament is an ideal stepping stone for Minnesota Division B teams, as well as teams from other states, to prepare for regional and state competition. Here are a few other reasons to come to the Gopher Science Olympiad Invitational:

  • Test Writing: All our tests will be written by Science Olympiad veterans who have had extensive experience in their respective events. In addition, coaches will not be required to write or proctor exams, allowing them to focus on running their teams.
  • National Schedule: Our tournament will be following the exact National Tournament schedule (with the exception of Bottle Rocket), allowing teams to participate to the best of their abilities at the tournament.
  • The U of M campus: The tournament will be held in state-of-the-art classrooms and facilities at the University of Minnesota, allowing middle school students to experience the college campus.
