Grants of up to $2,500 to Western Pennsylvania teachers and administrators to establish inclusive science competition programs in their elementary/middle schools or districts. Funding may be used to acquire materials and equipment for the competition. The goal of the program is to assist students of all levels to succeed in science by making it fun and exciting. It is designed for students in grades four through six; however, it can be adapted to include lower grade levels. First-time applicants will receive first consideration for grant money.
The purpose of the SSP Elementary School Science Olympiad Program (ESSOP) is to excite, inspire, challenge, and foster the fun side of science for all elementary students of all abilities. The ESSOP provides information, manuals, training, and grant money for teachers and administrators to promote Science Olympiad programs in their schools or districts.
A Science Olympiad consists of different hands-on events where students take an active role in exploring science topics related to the school’s science curriculum. The events can be scheduled to occur as half-day up to three-day competitions. Each event, either competitive or non-competitive in design, meets the current National Science Standards, as well as the Science Standards set by the Pennsylvania Department of Education.
Grant amounts will be awarded based on:
