“I credit Science Olympiad with giving me the courage to finish my college degree. Many times in life we overcomplicate goals. Science Olympiad reminded me that the spark for math and science starts from a very pure place and that if you break down a problem into its fundamental parts, it is much easier to conquer that task.” – Conen Morgan
