Reminder to Elementary Coaches
Elementary schools have 5 classes to choose from to enter their team(s), and are decided by the students actually participating in the competition (not simply by the grades contained in the school). Teams may be different than classes used for the earlier Spell Bowl competition or the M.A.T.H. Bowl competition in February.  Please check the confirmation lists to see that each team is entered in the correct class and contact the IASP office immediately if changes are required. Click here for the Science Bowl Confirmation List. The 2016-17 Membership-Participation Form is available online, and includes information to help schools enter the correct class. Click here for the 2016-17 Membership-Participation Form
Help Recruiting your Team
To help coaches save some time as you search out student for your team, IASP is providing a printable flyer. You can print, fill in your information, copy and post them around your building. The flyer is designed to fit on 8.5″ x 11″ paper. Click here for the Science Bowl Recruitment Flyer. [Requires Adobe Reader]
Description of the Elementary Science Bowl Competition
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 (see Science Bowl Coach Handbook for specific standards used each year.) Practice questions will be released in mid-December, and continue to be available through January so teams can use it as their schedule allows. The Competition will be held on three consecutive days in late January, and teams may choose which date(s) work best for them. If technology is not available at the school, alternate sites may be selected. A team may have a minimum of four members. There is no maximum number of team members. Only 4 students will submit the Individual Round, but an unlimited number may participate in the Team and Experiments Rounds. The 90 minute on-line contest will present 30 questions to be answered by allowing 30 minutes for team questions related to an on-site, hands-on experiment and the results; 30 minutes for general team questions; and 30 minutes for individual questions. A maximum of 4 computers may be used for this section. The scoring will give team feedback quickly and state-wide results by the next day at noon. Awards will be mailed to teams following the posted results. Plaques will be awarded to the top 3 teams in each class. Ribbons will be sent to the Top 10 teams. Student participation certificates will be sent to each coach after DSP receives notification of how many are needed. Email dabel@iasp.org for the number of certificates required.
