Note: Events may be altered from the description in the manual. Watch for clarifications and event updates.
Event Times: All events will be completed in 30-minute time blocks, unless otherwise noted in the schedule. In all cases, the schedule will take precedence over the time suggested in the Elementary Science Olympiad Rules Manual.
Important: A maximum of up to fifteen (15) students may participate on each team the day of the Science Olympiad. Although many students may prepare, explore, learn, and enjoy the preparation for the Science Olympiad, you will be limited to fifteen students on your team on the day of the Science Olympiad tournament. Most events are organized for two students from each school team to participate—you will select two students to represent your school in the event. You may not send more than one set of two students to participate in any given event unless an exception is published for a certain event(s). Yes, this often means that some students may represent your team in only one or two events.
