Washtenaw Elementary Science Olympiad
  • SCIENCE OLYMPIAD 2022 IS HERE!

     What is Science Olympiad?

    The Washtenaw Science Olympiad is a Science competition for 2nd thru 5th graders in Washtenaw County.  We usually have about 40 schools registered. All of the events involve teamwork, group planning, and cooperation. That is the real essence of the Science Olympiad. The main goal is to learn about science through active, hands-on, group participation. The Olympiad brings students, teachers, coaches, principals, business leaders, and parents together as they work towards this common goal and provides an alternative to the “isolated scientist” stereotype. Students will see that science can be fun, exciting, and challenging and the team spirit and good sportsmanship they develop will be beneficial throughout their lives.  This year, our competetion will look a little different, as we are fully virtual.

    Thinking About Coaching an Event??  

    Remember, as a coach, you determine your own practice schedules.  Practices can be held at homes, libraries, and other venues.  As of now, for any practices held AT LOGAN, we are planning to hold practice in April and May when it is warmer and we can be outdoors.  

    The virtual Event Coach meetings will take place beginning Monday, 2/28. Each event will have its own session, meeting time, and meeting link. The links to the event sessions will be posted on the calendar on the WESO website. The link will be posted the afternoon of the Event Coach session. The calendar can be accessed through this link: https://wesoscience.org/my-calendar/.   Session times are listed below.
