Exploring the World of Science. Science Olympiad.What is Science Olympiad?

Science Olympiad offers students the opportunity to learn more about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics while working together in teams. Students participate in fun and rewarding tournaments. Events are changed or revised every year so that students continue learning new ideas and concepts.

Who Can Participate?

At Churchill Road, students can participate in Division B (grades 5 and 6) or Division A (grades 4 and 5) of the Science Olympiad.
