The Science Olympiad team competes in tournaments sponsored by the Virginia Science Olympiad organization (VASO). Robinson fields three teams of 15 students each; thus, students must apply to be part of the Science Olympiad team as the number of students allowed to compete is limited. Applications are typically available in May and September for the following competition season which runs from October through April. Students prepare for the competition with their partners at weekly mandatory team practices. Most students will compete in 3-4 events during a competition with the whole team competing in 23 events total throughout a tournament day. Science Olympiad events span all the sciences and include technology and engineering challenges.
