What is the Science Olympiad?  It is a morning filled with science and engineering challenges in an Olympic-type format. With the assistance of their parents, students in grades 3-5 work in teams to represent their schools. "Winning teams" receive  first, second, or third place medals. All students receive a special Science Olympiad certificate and souvenir. In 2019, the Olympiad site will be Emerson Middle School, 8101 N. Cumberland Ave., Niles, on Saturday, February 2, 2019, 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.
