Our Science Olympiad team is very competitive with the district and regional schools. Science Olympiad relies on parent volunteers to support the multiple teams and categories. Last year (2021-2022), C.H. Parker competed in 17 events and placed in 14 of them. Science Olympiad provides hands-on, inquiry-based activities that challenge students in grades 3-5 to build their own understanding of basic scientific concepts, like measurement, force, engineering design, and energy.
