More than 100 students, representing 18 teams from 12 high schools, including Mosinee and Wausau West, will compete from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday in the North Regional Tournament of the Wisconsin Science Olympiad at the University of Wisconsin Marathon County. Qualifiers from the tournament will advance to the state tournament at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee on April 13.

It will be the sixth straight year that UWMC has hosted the competition in its field house, located at the intersection of S. Seventh and Garfield avenues in Wausau. The event is free and spectators are welcome to watch the competition.

Teams will compete in 25 science knowledge and skills events tests and demonstrations, ranging from biotechnology to geocaching to forensics to magnetic-levitation to tower building. Teachers from the participating high schools and UWMC faculty members will design and run the competition, adhering to national event requirements.
