Science Olympiad 2013  

February 25, 2013

The ESU 10 Regional Science Olympiad Scheduled For March 19, 2013.

Each year ESU 10 staff plan a variety of activities which directly involve more than 1,400 students. Science Olympiad is only one of these events where students are provided opportunities to compete in the areas of physical, life, and earth sciences. This event allows students to accomplish goals in demonstrating understanding and mastery of science, mathematics, and technology concepts that require not only knowledge and problem-solving skills but also the ability to work together as a group.

Competition is provided on national, state, and regional levels. ESU 10 is providing the opportunity for area schools to compete by hosting the 24th Annual Regional Science Olympiad on March 19, 2013. A Science Olympiad team is composed of up to fifteen students for Division B (grades 6-9) and Division C (grades 9-12).

Science Olympiad events are designed to use a variety of intellectual and practical skills. Some events require a quick recall of specific facts, while others require concept development, a process skill, or an application of a
specific concept. Some events require general knowledge while others require a specific skill. Others may require a student to build an apparatus.

Athletic-style medals will be given for each event. In addition, championship trophies will be awarded to the Division B and C school teams compiling the most total points during the Science Olympiad tournament.
