What is Science Olympiad?
Science Olympiad B details will be published soon for 2021-2022 - check back for details!
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 to learn 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 Science Olympiad. Students who are interested in STEM will enjoy participating. They will expand their scientific knowledge and other skills with hands-on experiences and collaborative teamwork.
Science Olympiad B
Division B is for CRS students in 5th or 6th grade. Students will participate in a regional tournament competition, which will determine potential qualification for the state tournament. The tournaments are highly competitive (Division B includes middle school), covering a diverse set of science and technology topics designed to expand the Middle School science curriculum.
Interested parents and students must attend one of the mandatory orientation meetings on TBA. In addition, a lottery to determine participants will be conducted on TBA (if the number of interested students exceeds the maximum). After the lottery, parents will be notified via email regarding lottery status and instructions on completing registration and payment.

For students in grades 6 and up, Science Olympiad offers MY SO for the 2021-2022 school year. MY SO is a national program that includes 9 themed months (starting September 2021) of resources and activities. STEM Showdowns will be held one Thursday per month - registration for each showdown is done monthly ($10 ticket).
Science Olympiad A
Division A is open to CRS students in 4th or 5th grade (5th-grade students already participating in Division B may not participate). Students will prepare during Fall to compete in a Science Olympiad Regional tournament held locally. This inter-scholastic competition encourages learning in biology, earth science, chemistry, physics, problem-solving, and technology through a variety of events. At least one parent of each student must serve as a mentor for one of the competition events.
Interested parents and students must attend one of the mandatory orientation meetings: TBA; meetings will be in the library. If necessary, a lottery to determine participants will be conducted on TBA (note: a lottery is typically not required for SO-A). Parents will be notified via email regarding lottery status and instructions on completing registration and payment if a lottery is held. Students will be placed on a waitlist once maximum enrollment has been reached.
