Norwich Science Olympiad

2015 Olympiad: Top Class finals June 30 & July 2 2015


Welcome to the Norwich Science Olympiad Website. This is the place to come to find out the latest news and developments, to contact the organising team and to enter for events.

What is it all about?

The Science Olympiad is usually a series of science based challenges which take place at the University of East Anglia. Years 3 to 6 take part in the primary challenges on one day and Years 7 to 10 and Year 12 have challenges on the other. Trophies and medals are awarded to the winning teams at the end of the day. This part of the Olympiad will not take place in 2014.

On two evenings during the week a stage show final to the Top Class quiz takes place. This is a internet based quiz for which teams have been competing during the preceding term.

Who can get involved?

If you are at school in Years 3 - 10 or 12 and would like to participate, tell your teacher and send them a link to this page. If you are a parent and would like to get your children involved please do the same. Please also get in touch using the email addresses below if you would like to join in with the organisation or helping on the day.


To enter your pupils for the competitions we have an online entry form which will be available soon.

Would you like to help?
