A Brief About Us

The Science Olympiad Foundation Uganda was founded primarily to popularise science education; to bring children closer to the liking of science; and to demystify all stereotypes portraying the sciences as complex disciplines. Our sphere of activities aim at popularizing science education and creating a deeper understanding of scientific method.

Our core program, the National Science Olympiad (NSO), has over the years played a pivotal role in nurturing young minds and encouraging a passion for science. The NSO is a research-focused competition for primary and secondary school learners, that seeks to spark a curiosity for science among them while banking on their everyday classroom scientific theories. Following the end of the NSO, student teams are selected to represent the Country at the International Science Olympiads namely; The International Junior Science Olympiad (IJSO), International Young Naturalists Tournament (IYNT), International Young Physicists Tournament (IYPT) and the International Mathematics Competition (IMC).
