Applications are now open for 4th and 5th grade students who would like to join Brookwood Elementary's Science Olympiad Team. Applications must be submitted by November 12th. The team, made up of 12 fourth grade and 8 fifth grade members, will be chosen based on their science test scores and teacher recommendations. Team members will be notified by November 19th.
Science Olympiad meets weekly to research material and work with team members in preparation for Regional and State Science Olympiad Competitions.

The emphasis of most events is active, hands-on group participation and are designed to use a variety of intellectual and practical skills like quick recall of facts or concept development.
