Science Bowl

Elementary Science Bowl

The IASP Department of Student programs, in partnership with Purdue University, has developed an online Science Bowl competition for elementary school students in grades 4, 5 and 6. Instead of traveling to a host site to compete, teams will take an online test at their school or another internet ready site of their choosing. Indiana 2010 Science Standards for grades 5, 6 and 7 have been targeted as the base to build questions for this activity. The 90-minute contest will use questions created by outside consultants from Indiana Science Standards.
