New Mexico may be relatively poor and underpopulated, but the government-run Sandia and Los Alamos National Laboratories attract scientists, who in turn spur their children's interest in science and Science Olympiad. The B division has been dominated as of late by Albuquerque Academy and Albuquerque Academy Home Schoolers, while consistently strong contenders in the C division are Albuquerque Academy, Albuquerque Area Home Schoolers, and La Cueva High School.
