Team History

Palo Alto (Paly) Science Olympiad was established by science aficionados 26 years ago, in 1994. Since then, we have grown significantly into a team that consistently places in the top 2 at Regionals and continues on to the State level every year. In 2013, we even advanced to the National competition, a first in Paly SciOly history.

Jordan Science Olympiad (now Greene Science Olympiad) was first established in 2011 by members of the Paly SciOly team as a way to return to their roots and promote interest in the sciences amongst middle schoolers. It has grown into two teams, much like Paly SciOly, that participate in the regional competition at the Division B level. In the 2020-2021 season, Greene SciOly made its way to Norcal States for the first time, taking home 5th place!
