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.
