Air Force Recruiting Service recognizes that Science Olympiad team members embody many of the core principles that make a great leader, and presented the two gold medal winners of the MagLev event at the 2014 Science Olympiad National Tournament with $1,000 college scholarships, as they have done annually since 2011. A former Science Olympiad competitor now serving in the Air Force said, "Science Olympiad gave me an opportunity to develop my scientific and engineering mind so when I went to college and eventually on to my military career, I was a better prepared individual."

Science Olympiad's partnership with US Air Force at the 2013 & 2014 Science Olympiad National Tournaments at Wright State University and University of Central Florida featured the Rapid Strike Vehicle Simulator, appearances by top brass at the Opening and Closing Ceremonies, and an info booth.

Volunteers from Wright-Patterson Air Force Base were on campus all weekend in 2013, and students were invited to visit the Air Force Museum. In 2013, students attended the Air Force Remote Sensing Technology Workshop on Friday, May 17, where two airmen spoke about their experience with Remote Sensing technology and discussed how Special Operations use Remote Sensing innovations in air, space and cyberspace.
