Our inaugural Elementary Science Olympiad team medaled in nine of 12 events at its first competition! The children competed against seven teams in events that challenged their knowledge of anatomy, aerodynamics, biology and more.

Science Olympiad (SO) is a nonprofit organization devoted to improving the quality of science education, increasing student interest in science and providing recognition for outstanding achievement in science education.
