Elementary Competitions

Elementary Science Olympiad (ESO) is a wonderful hands-on exposure to the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) world for K-6! Having your students participate in ESO prepares them for future STEM competitions at the higher level and also builds up your student’s confidence in STEM.

ESO is similar to the middle school Science Olympiad events – but are scaled down to size! You can find wonderful resources at:
