Science Olympiad & the Wright Stuff

Science Olympiad Events

Science Olympiad competitors

In addition to your Invitational, Regional, State, and National SO events, NFFS will strive to identify and host other flying opportunities. Often these will be at AMA-sanctioned events, where you will get to fly alongside expert indoor flyers, who will often bend over backwards to support youth flyers. In some cases, NFFS will arrange SO seminar flying sessions where the primary focus will be on SO Wright Stuff flying. We will also include Science Olympiad flying and coaching in our annual AMA/NFFS Nationals. Some of the AMA-sanctioned events may require AMA membership for insurance reasons. AMA membership for youth is only $15/year, and includes multi-million-dollar liability insurance, as well as a great magazine.
