This year’s tournament will be a Division C Science Olympiad Invitational tournament held on February 18, 2023, in-person on the UMass Amherst campus.
Our tournament will run the same 21 main events as the Massachusetts State Science Olympiad. All main event conflicts will be the same as the state tournament. Trial events will be announced at a future date. We expect to provide individual homerooms for all competing schools.
Our tournament will also focus on being hands-on
. This means two big things for competing teams:
- The tournament will have a focus on build events, and
- Most non-build events will be run in a stations format.
More detailed information about how our tournament will be run can be found on
this information document.

After much consideration from feedback provided by interested teams, we’ve decided to follow the same event schedule as states this year! We know that many teams in Massachusetts build themselves around the state’s events and event conflicts, and we hope to prepare all competitors regardless of experience by offering a tournament that runs in a similar format. We do have a couple key differences, however, so please take note of the tournament details and keep an eye out for further updates!
