It's mostly just how thorough your science classes have been. I mean the physical challenges at states were pretty easy (sorry J.T. Lambert people), and it just depends on what your mental question is. I really think the physical part is there just because it's pointless to have an event where 4 kids each answer a question. And most of the challenges are something you pick up from playing sports, or in gym class.
There is no physcial part about science.
Ever heard of physics? ;)
there may be some physical part in physics but here is not much to it

But it's not good for science olympiad. Which is why most of us would rather it be switched with something that better measures ability in science. However, that's not likely to happen... :x
