Dear Brassfield Families,

The 2019-2020 Science Olympiad Team is seeking young scientists from grades 3-5 who are willing to collaborate, become an expert in a specific science area, and represent BRES at this year’s science competition. The date of the spring competition has not yet been set.

 > NEW<  this year is an after school club held every Monday 3:45-4:45 starting after Labor Day. You can build friendships while exploring science content through inquiry-based activities. This year’s events have not yet been released. There is a one time fee of $35 to participate. This will cover team shirts, supplies, and tournament fees.

BRES team is limited to 36 students (Varsity and JV teams). Preference will be given to former participants and 5th graders during team selection.

Requirements:

  • Signed Permission Slip to participate.
  • Strong commitment to weekly clubs, partner work with event coach and family volunteers
  • $35 Registration Fee due at first meeting
