Science Olympiad


The Mounds View Science Olympiad Team is the most successful team in Minnesota Science Olympiad History. Since its founding in 2002, Mounds View Science Olympiad has won the Minnesota state tournament 10 times (2004, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016).

Mounds View represented Minnesota at the Science Olympiad national tournament in each of those 10 years. The highest that Mounds View has finished at nationals is 2nd, which occurred at the 2014 tournament at University of Central Florida in Orlando, Florida. Over the years, the team has accumulated over 30 individual medals at the National Competitions. For the past 4 years, the team has consistently placed in the top 10 nationally as a team. At the 2016 National Science Olympiad Tournament in Stout, Wisconsin, Mounds View placed 10th out of 60 teams. Individually, students received 1st place in Electric Vehicle, 1st place in Wind Power, 2nd place in Cell Biology, 3rd place in Disease Detectives, and finally 6th place in Chemistry Lab.
