Harriton High School started competing in Science Olympiad around 1991 in Southeast Pennsylvania. The Harriton Science Olympiad team, under head coach Brian Gauvin, is one of the most successful teams at the school. Harriton prides itself on its open system in which anyone can join the team and each tournament's competing team is determined by the 15 people on the team who will serve the team best given the circumstances (i.e. ability and scheduling). The team is rather large especially given the small size of the school (currently about 1100) with between 25-40 or so people on the team each year. All those on the team, competing or not, are encouraged to come to all competitions. Harriton has placed first in the Pennsylvania state Science Olympiad competition for the last fifteen years (1998-2012) and won the national Science Olympiad title in 1995, 2001, and 2005. The Harriton team consistently scores in the top ten at the national competition having done so for the last 18 years (1994-2011). Most recently, Harriton placed sixth at the University of Central Florida 2012 National competition, and 1st at the 2012 Pennsylvania State Competition. Their current streak of 15 straight Pennsylvania state titles is the longest of any Pennsylvania activity or sport.
