ESO in the Classroom
The Elementary Science Olympiad offers over 80 challenging and motivational events
which are balanced among the various science disciplines of life science, earth science, and physical science. These individual and team events also offer a balance among events requiring knowledge of science facts, concepts, processes, skills, and applications. While a number of the events are in the form of a general quiz, the majority provide an element of "hands-on" participation allowing the "active" study of science. The emphasis is on learning, participation, interaction, and having fun.

The ESO at JHS Event Archive hosts over 30 exciting events. Educators from all disciplines are encouraged to incorporate these events in their classes. All ESO events have been designed to provide strong relationships with elementary science curricula from throughout the United States.

In addition to the over 30 original events created by the ESO at Jacksonville High School staff, a complete Elementary Science Olympiad guide including directions for over 80 events and tips for coaches and teachers to begin their own Elementary Science Olympiad competition at their school or in their area is available from the National Science Olympiad Headquarters.

Visit the Science Olympiad Store online to order a manual and/or DVD.
