Modeled after the Elementary Science Olympiad, the Elementary Science Olympiad Invitational features 8 different “events.” Registered students are eligible to participate in 2 of the following “events.”
Build It: Students will work in pairs in a race against time to reconstruct an unknown structure from only written instructions.
Crime Busters: Disaster! A crime has happened, and students must use their scientific knowledge and skills to solve the mystery and find the culprit.
Don’t Bug Me!: New! The contestants are to distinguish insects from non-insects, identify various body parts, characteristics, habitats, ecological significance, life cycles, and major orders of insects.
Experimental Design: New! Students will be presented with a set of materials and a prompt asking them to design an experiment testing a specific property using the materials. Students will be judged on their understanding of the scientific method and how logical their report is.
Picture This: Participants will learn various scientific terminology, and then race against time to draw and guess as many terms as possible in the allotted time.
Solid, Liquid, Gas: Students will learn and be tested on how solid their knowledge of the states of matter and the transitions between them is.
Sound Detection: New! Students will put their hearing to the test with a variety of tasks designed to teach them about sound and its properties.
Straw Towers: Team up to see who can build the tallest straw tower! Use your knowledge of structural engineering to push your tower to new heights!
