Highlander Invitational: Science Olympiad returns to the University of California, Riverside

On January 28, 2023, the national Science Olympiad competition returned to the University of California, Riverside for the first time in over 10 years. The tournament, dubbed “Highlander Invitational,” was part of the national track-meet style competition where middle and high school students competed in events surrounding all areas of science. Highlander Invitational was organized by Change in Scientific Importance for Youth (Delta SIFY), a student organization at UCR which aims to provide immersive educational opportunities for students in underserved communities to explore the fields of STEM.
