It works like this, kindergarten through sixth grade students team up with teachers. They're assigned different activities where students can win points. The events ranged from solar system jeopardy, to the student favorite, the egg lob. Each activity was designed to teach students more about science while having a little fun in the process.

"They learn about a ton of different science concepts behind this and we really try to talk about the science behind all of events ," said third grade teacher, Amy Beil-Larson.

This is the second year for the schools Science Olympics.
