The nation's most exciting science competition now has kits for at-home use!
- Lesson plans and worksheets for two hands-on activities (lesson plans include extension suggestions for classroom or competition use)
- Materials to complete activities, excluding a few common household items (eggs are not included)
- Educational standard: ESS-1
Elementary Science Olympiad Signature Events kits encourage hands-on learning and exploration for students in grades K-6, either at home or at school. The Operation Egg Drop kit will help your child or student explore engineering design by constructing parachutes and other systems to protect an egg from a fall. They will learn basic concepts of force, design and energy, as well as experience making design decisions based on constraints, just as an engineering professional would.
All activities are aligned to Next Generation Science Standards, nationally recognized standards for science instruction. Parents, afterschool providers, and classroom teachers can successfully guide younger children through these activities, regardless of science background or knowledge. Older and more advanced children may be able to independently complete the activities with minimal assistance from adults.
