Science Olympiad

An intensive science enrichment program open to 5th and 6th grade students. Student pairs participate in 3-4 topics and work from September – March/April preparing for their topics to compete at tournaments. ALL parents MUST be volunteers/coaches/mentors for this program. (Limit of 30 students on the team). If we are oversubscribed, Mrs. Sahai will conduct a lottery to select 30 students.

For 2021-22 school year, we will not have any dedicated in-person school sessions this year. Instead, Mrs. Sahai will be available via email and offer virtual meetings to support students and families. I will go over the details of how this program will run this year at the information meeting on Sept. 14th.

Please note, Science Olympiad is an extremely rewarding program, yet it requires an EXTENSIVE amount of commitment from PARENTS and students. ALL parents MUST be mentors for the program. There is no way to participate without mentoring. More will be explained at the meeting.
