2019 Tournament

We hosted the first CMU Science Olympiad Division C Invitational Tournament on Saturday, January 12th, 2019 on Carnegie Mellon’s campus in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. As a mecca of STEM innovation, CMU is the perfect location to host a Science Olympiad tournament. We’re excited to share the Carnegie Mellon experience with you!

It’s done!

Here are the complete results. Thanks to all teams who came for helping make our first invitational tournament a huge success!
