Link to sign in to this year's virtual science olympiad  

    Dear Families,

    Our 2nd - 5th grade students have an opportunity to participate in an online science club to further expand their experiences with scientific concepts.  This year, Science Olympiad is going digital because of the after school activity restrictions due to COVID-19.  Because of this, Science Olympiad will be considered more like a club as opposed to a competition. Students will be able to work through “The Challenges” using the online resources for each event.  This is NOT for a grade, but students will be able to earn certificates for the completion of each challenge.  These challenges are familiar Science Olympiad events, such as: Barge Building, Backyard Biologist, and Weather or Not.  Sound like fun?  If so, complete the attached Google Form by Monday January 25th, and we will create a Schoology Course specifically for this club. 

    There you will find information about each challenge and the resources available.  Thank you for your support and interest in our Science program at Inman Elementary.

    It will be Science Olympiad time before you know it!

    If your child loves science, is inquisitive, and likes to create, engineer, and test designs, then consider applying to be part of the Science Olympiad Team!

    What is SO?

    Elementary Science Olympiad provides students engaging learning opportunities in STEM in a variety of ways.  Teams are constructed and practices are help after school to prepare for the big county wide competition in March.

    Who Can Participate?

    Students in grades 3rd-5th

    How Can I Help?

    Volunteer to coach an event. You determine the practice schedule and event. Pick an event you are an expert in or something you can learn alongside your team. I will help you gather materials and activities.

    If you can’t coach, but could schedule a time to share your expertise with a team one afternoon, you are needed as well.


    The events are listed below:
