2018 GA ESO Events
Many ESO events can be interpreted a bit broadly. The Event Clarifications document explains additional rules that will be applied to event descriptions published in the Science Olympiad Manual. Please read these clarifications carefully.
What is Elementary Science Olympiad?
Elementary Science Olympiad provides students engaging learning opportunities in STEM in a variety of ways. ESO may be used for classroom instruction, Science Days/Nights, Inter-grade level competition (such as a Science Field Day) and as a Competition. Each state/event organizer determines whether to offer ESO competitions. Georgia hosts one of the largest ESO competitions with 65 teams each May at Kennesaw State University.
State Competition Qualification for GA ESO: Affiliated ESO competitions will again be given an allotment of team slots for the state ESO competition. Only 1 team per school/organization may advance to the state competition even if a school/organization competes with multiple teams an affiliated qualifying ESO competition. This models the structure for middle and high school GASO.
What defines a TEAM for ESO competition?
The ESO state competition advisory board has defined a TEAM for ESO competition as:
Teams my be composed of up to 20 3rd-6th grade students. Each team may have up to eight 5th grade students or up to six 6th grade students, with no more than 8 total 5th and 6th grade students.
Event Rule Books: These may be purchased from the Science Olympiad Store for a cost of $20 plus shipping.
