Elementary Science Olympiad competitions are like academic track meets, consisting of a series of 18 team events in the Elementary Division A. Each year, a portion of the events are rotated to reflect the ever-changing nature of genetics, earth science, chemistry, anatomy, physics, geology, mechanical engineering and technology. By combining events from all disciplines, Elementary Science Olympiad encourages a wide cross section of students to get involved. Emphasis is placed on active, hands-on group participation. Through Elementary Science Olympiad, students, teachers, parents, and administrators bond together and work toward a shared goal. Elementary Science Olympiad requires dedication, preparation, commitment, coaching, and practice throughout the year. Each school-based team is allowed to bring 20 3-5 grade students who cross-train for a variety of events in their skill set. Fulton Science Academy Private School will have 1 ESO team this year with each student preparing for 2-3 events.
