Homeschool Science Colorado (google us for more info) was founded in Fall 2008 and we entered our first competition Spring 2009 with a small and young B team that placed third in both the Southern Regional and State Competitions. In Fall 2009, when four of our students were too old for B, we added a C team to our club.

We finished strong in 2011-2012; our C team won Southern Regional and our B team placed a very close second. At state, both teams were a close second, missing a trip to Nationals.

Also in 2011-2012, we formed a JV team (B division), mainly of little brothers and sisters, some as young as 8. They made an excellent showing at Regionals with a few medals and many single-digit scores at Regionals.

Our students work hard and have learned to be resourceful and dedicated learners. Our parents are our coaches, our kitchen tables are our labs, a fleet of minivans gets us from here to there, and a good search engine is our favorite resource.

Our mission is to provide participants, parents, coaches and all involved with the team a positive learning experience in the fields of Science. To compete as a team in Science Olympiad with character described in the Rule Handbook. To instill not only in ourselves but in our team a sense of pride and integrity that may be passed on for years to come.
