Elementary STEM Olympiad (4-6)
Elementary STEM Olympiad
The District Elementary Math & Science Olympiad Competition will be held on
May 18, 2021
We will use the same events as outlined for 2020.
The elementary Science Olympiad is developed by teachers in Davis School District. It is a competition for 4th-6th graders which seeks to develop STEM based skills in our students. The events change regularly and are broken in to 3 Science/Engineering events and 3 Math events. We will be hosting a coordinator meeting on Monday, November 23, 2020. This will be a virtual meeting held on TEAMS. Fill out the following form to receive an invitation to the meeting.
We look forward to the Olympiad and it will be held virtually if the face-to-face option is not viable.
There will be two sessions that day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon.
Each session will last approximately 2 hours, 9:00-11:30 or 1:00-3:30.
Your school will be assigned one session to attend.
Busing will NOT be provided by the District. You will need to make your own arrangements for transporting your students to and from Central Davis Junior High School.
One teacher will need to accompany students from each grade level.
Parents are not to chaperone students.

There will be six events at the Olympiad (three Math and three Science). Each event has a rule/information sheet. Please be sure to familiarize your students with the rules.

Each event is designed for a team of 2 students. Each grade level is eligible to send one team of 2 students in each event for their school. Note: Only one team per grade level per school is eligible to compete in each event.
Students may participate in more than one event if desired, but it is not mandatory.
Students who are waiting to compete, or who have finished their competition, are required to stay with their school chaperone and to be respectful spectators as the other students complete their events.
Please do not bring your entire class to the Olympiad. Only students competing in the Olympiad are invited to attend.
Competition and Awards
Students will compete against students on their same grade level from other schools.
Scores will be tabulated at the end of each event and winners will receive their awards.
