San Joaquin County Science Olympiad Competition 
SCIENCE OLYMPIAD.gif
Every year, South West Park Elementary sends two teams to compete in the San Joaquin County Science Olympiad. This prestigious event is held at McNair High School in Stockton. The SWP Science Olypiad team meets ever week, honing their skills, as they study and actively use Science to collaborate with each other.  Hands on experiments, observations, studey groups, and researching are all part of this process. Scientifically minded parents are recruited to help lead small groups through the rigorous criteria set forth for each event. Over time, the students become experts in their particular events. Ultimately, the team, families, and teachers set out early on a Saturday morning in March. It is an all-day affair with scheduled events and has a tailgate type excitement. The day culminates with the Science Bowl competition in the big gym. Excitement spikes as we cheer for our teams. We encourage GATE students third - sixth grade to join the team!
