For the middle school competition, see Division B. For the high school competition, see Division C.

Division A, also known as Elementary Science Olympiad (ESO), is for elementary school age students, grades K-6. In this division, non-competitive Fun Days and Fun Nights, are run for all grades, and Competitive Tournaments are run for grades 3-6.

Division A is not currently as widespread as Divisions B or C, and as of 2017 there is no National Tournament for Division A.


Events may vary widely between tournaments and states. The Science Olympiad store has materials to set up an Elementary Science Olympiad tournament or a fun day or fun night event.
