Science Olympiad


2018 Middle School SciOly Events:

Science Olympiad employs cross-cutting concepts in all of its standards-aligned events, building 21st century skill sets essential to today’s science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) workforce. There are 23 events each in Division B (middle school), providing a platform for students to apply and display a wide variety of talents, from design and prototyping, to technical writing, to chemistry lab skills.

A team of 15 students pairs up to tackle the 23 events which are generally spaced in six 50-minute blocks across a Saturday, encouraging collaboration, teamwork and cross-training.

Please follow the links below for this year’s current events – each page is filled with free resources for students, coaches and event supervisors like videos, slide shows, handouts and helpful links.

2018 Elementary School SciOly Events:

Elementary Science Olympiad provides students engaging learning opportunities in STEM in a variety of ways. ESO may be used for classroom instruction, Science Days/Nights, Inter-grade level competition (such as a Science Field Day) and as a Competition. Each state/event organizer determines whether to offer ESO competitions. Georgia hosts one of the largest ESO competitions with 65 teams each May at Kennesaw State University.

State Competition Qualification for GA ESO: Affiliated ESO competitions will again be given an allotment of team slots for the state ESO competition. Only 1 team per school/organization may advance to the state competition even if a school/organization competes with multiple teams an affiliated qualifying ESO competition. This models the structure for middle and high school GASO.

What defines a TEAM for ESO competition?
The ESO state competition advisory board has defined a TEAM for ESO competition as:

Teams my be composed of up to 20 3rd-6th grade students. Each team may have up to eight 5th grade students or up to six 6th grade students, with no more than 8 total 5th and 6th grade students.
