Innovator's Olympics

  • The Innovators Olympics is a competition for students who have shown outstanding interest and ability in the fields of science and engineering.  Five Olympics stations, each focusing on a domain of science and engineering, are completed by teams of two fifth grade competitors from each school. These challenges require teamwork, innovation, creativity, and knowledge. Judges will award points in each challenge for student performance. High-scoring teams in each challenge will receive awards, as will overall winning teams who accumulate the most points in all five challenges.
