2024 Tournament Sponsors

Golden Gate Science Olympiad would like to thank our sponsors for bringing our dream of the tournament to reality:


The competition only runs smoothly because of the talent and hard work of our many, many volunteers throughout the process. Volunteering can be the fun, day-long adventure of assisting with a tournament event—time and test building events, or score and grade the written tests, and more—or the more-involved commitment of an events supervisor. As an events supervisor, you get the chance to write the test and/or be in the ‘room where it happens’ on the day of the event, influencing the way students will display the knowledge they have worked so hard to cultivate. Whatever volunteering commitment you decide is right for you, it is bound to happen that you will learn something: and lifelong learning and curiosity is something GGSO certainly supports. Applications for general volunteers are open now!

Executive Board

Looking for an additional leadership role and more teamwork and involvement yet? Being part of the executive board for the GGSO Team puts you right in the center of the planning. With roles as diverse as Finance and Communications, Special Projects to Sponsorship, there is a place for a wide variety of personal experiences. If you have participated in Science Olympiad in the past and thought you might not get the chance to play an important role after high school graduation, being part of the Executive Board is a great way to involve yourself further and make a difference in how tournaments are designed and run.

Applications will open in the spring.

Golden Gate Science Olympiad would like to thank our past sponsors for bringing our dream of the tournament to reality:

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory has a mission of strengthening the United States’ security by developing and applying world-class science, technology and engineering that enhances the nation’s defense, reduces the global threat from terrorism and weapons of mass destruction, and responds with vision, quality, integrity and technical excellence to scientific issues of national importance.

To expand knowledge and create transformative technology through original research to tackle the world’s biggest challenges. To work toward a transformed society, in which all members can thrive, through service to government, industry and the engineering professions.

Jane Street is a quantitative trading firm with a unique focus on technology and collaborative problem solving.

The mission of the Art of Problem Solving Initiative is to advance mathematics education by promoting opportunities for advanced study.

The Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society (CITRIS) and the Banatao Institute leverage the research strengths of the University of California campuses at Berkeley, Davis, Merced, and Santa Cruz, and operate within the greater ecosystem of the University and the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit of Silicon Valley.

Wolfram|Alpha's long-term goal is to make all systematic knowledge immediately computable and accessible to everyone. Our mission is to collect and curate all objective data; implement every known model, method and algorithm; and make it possible to compute whatever can be computed about anything.

The Stanford Doerr School of Sustainability draws on a deep understanding of Earth, climate, and society to create solutions at a global scale, striving to create a future where humans and nature thrive in concert and in perpetuity. Our scholars work with collaborators in our own community and globally to understand challenges and generate solutions at scale. Across our activities we are embedding equity, access, and inclusion and a commitment to generating solutions that benefit all people, especially those most harmed by climate change and environmental damage.

Eureka Therapeutics is a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on discovering and developing innovative T-cell therapies for the treatment of cancer. Our versatile E-ALPHA® antibody discovery engine can generate fully human TCR-mimic antibodies against difficult intracellular antigen/MHC complex, as well as conventional cellular surface targets. This, when used in our proprietary ARTEMIS™ T-cell receptor platform, has created potentially safer and more effective T-cell therapies. Eureka Therapeutics will be co-hosting our 2020 invitational.

Consistently ranked in the Top 10 according to US News & World Report, Bioengineering at Berkeley seeks to define the new discipline of bioengineering by concentrating on cutting-edge research and the training of advanced undergraduate and graduate students to be the next leaders in the field.

The Industrial Engineering and Operations Research Department at the University of California at Berkeley teaches students to invent, analyze and learn tools and approaches for design, analysis, risk management, and decision-making in complex real-world systems like supply chains, energy systems, healthcare systems, and financial systems.

The UC Berkeley Department of Molecular & Cell Biology (MCB) is home to Undergraduate and Graduate academic programs as well as Faculty Research performed by faculty organized in five divisions: Biochemistry, Biophysics and Structural Biology; Cell and Developmental Biology; Genetics, Genomics and Development; Immunology and Pathogenesis; and Neurobiology. As a department, we are committed to supporting all our members and increasing the representation of historically under-represented groups in our community.

Stanford’s Office of Science Outreach (OSO) encourages and assists Stanford faculty and students to engage in science outreach targeted at our nation’s youth, school teachers, and general public that will increase their interest, understanding, and involvement in science, math, and engineering. Reporting to Stanford’s Dean of Research, the OSO helps faculty and students create outreach project ideas and proposals with which to share their research. We identify potential partners (both within Stanford as well as K-14 schools, nonprofits, science museums, etc.), assist with proposal development and project implementation, and maintain the OSO website to advertise what’s on offer.

Stanford ChEM-H is a new interdisciplinary institute focused on connecting Chemistry, Engineering, and Medicine for Human Health. The institute is a joint venture of the Schools of Medicine, Engineering, and Humanities and Sciences. The proximity of world-class biologists, chemists, engineers, and clinicians at Stanford presents a unique opportunity to study human biology at a molecular level, to translate this knowledge into groundbreaking products and services that promote healthy living, and to educate a new cadre of “physician-scientist-engineers” who will lead a rapidly evolving industry.

The Avogadro scoring system makes it painless to set up, host, score, and distribute results for Science Olympiad competitions.
