Science Olympiad at the University of Pennsylvania (SOUP) is a student-run organization at Penn that organizes a Science Olympiad invitational tournament and mentors local middle school teams in Philadelphia with the goal of spurring interest in STEM for students who might otherwise lack the opportunity.
Science Olympiad is a non-profit organization that hosts official tournaments on a regional, state, and national level with around 7,800 teams of 15 students across all 50 states. These tournaments consist of 23 events that test students on a range of subjects, including biology, earth and space science, chemistry, and engineering.
Participating in high school and middle school Science Olympiad inspired many of our members to pursue degrees and careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Our organization’s mission is to provide young students in the Philadelphia area and around the country with the opportunity to experience Science Olympiad.
