Dear Science Olympiad Coach/School Administrator,
We would like to invite you and your students to participate in the North Jersey Elementary Science Olympiad. This year’s competition will be held on Saturday, May 13th at Bergen Arts and Science Charter School at 43 Maple Avenue, Hackensack, NJ.
There are other academic competitions but few include the broad spectrum of scientific disciplines in one tournament. The North Jersey Elementary Science Olympiad celebrates academic excellence by challenging 3rd-6th grade students at the North Jersey tournament in approximately 14 events in the STEM field.
The events of the Science Olympiad do much more than test factual knowledge; participants are also engaged in problem solving, laboratory investigations and hands-on activities such as designing and testing vehicles, bridges and egg-carrying rockets. The excitement of the students for the Science Olympiad is demonstrated by their enthusiasm at the awards assembly at the end of the day. While the tournament itself is only one day, participation in the Science Olympiad provides a wealth of learning opportunities throughout the year. Preparing to compete in the various events also provides a vehicle for students to form new friendships and bond as a cohesive team.
The Science Olympiad models the friendly competitive spirit that drives scientific research. It provides an opportunity to demonstrate skills, knowledge and to interact with others who have similar interests.
You may navigate through the event website for detailed information, including eligibility requirements, contest format, awards, pictures from our past events, and more.
Also, complete your registration online to reserve your space. The registration fee for this year’s competition will be $100 per team. The fee will cover awards and the hospitality room for the coaches and event supervisors.
We look forward to seeing your team at the Science Olympiad in May. Please share this invitation with your colleagues.
