I wanted to introduce myself as the newest staff member at the Science Olympiad National Office, and I wanted to ensure that you were aware of our new initiative this year: MY SO.
MY SO is perfectly suited to homeschoolers who want to keep up their STEM skills during a year where we probably won’t see a lot of our normal in-person tournaments or meetings. It covers a new STEM topic each month with free lesson plans, resources, and career exploration videos to help families dive deeper into topics such as epidemiology, engineering, weather and plants. Curriculum is aligned with NGSS standards and prepares students to compete in the STEM Showdown, an online national competition at the end of each month (tickets are $10).
Program components and downloads are available here: https://www.soinc.org/myso
Since anyone can download, use, and register for MY SO activities, this is also a great way for non-Science Olympiad families to become familiar with Science Olympiad. If you have ideas of other ways we can spread information to the homeschooling community, I’d be very grateful!

Thank you for this info. I will send it to our group and everywhere else on social media. My children are part of a SO team. 🙂
