Regional Science Olympiad

The ESU 10 Regional Science Olympiad is for students in 6th-12th grade. Science Olympiad competitions are like academic track meets, consisting of a series of 12 team events in each division (Division B is middle school; Division C is high school). 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, Science Olympiad encourages a wide cross-section of students to get involved. Emphasis is placed on active, hands-on group participation.

Elementary Science Olympiad

The Elementary Science Olympiad (ESO) is the perfect complement to any 4th-6th grade science program. ESO events take advantage of the natural curiosity of each child and allow for in-depth hands-on experiences. No prep for the events is necessary. Due to limited space, each school building can only bring 6 students.

Digital Citizenship Symposium

https://sites.google.com/esu10.org/nebraskadigitalcitizenshipsymp/home

The Digital Citizenship Symposium is a statewide student event hosted by Educational Service Units throughout Nebraska. School districts bring teams of students and adults to hear speakers who focus on digital leadership, digital citizenship, and online safety. The teams also have time to create a plan for digital citizenship for their buildings. This event typically occurs early in the school year so that school teams have time to implement their plans and increase awareness of digital leadership in their schools and communities. ESU 10 has hosted a regional site since 2011.
