Science Olympiad Team
Elementary Science Olympiad is a perfect complement to the Rama Road Elementary K-6 science program. It supports the current science curriculum across Grades K-5 as well as the weekly Science Lab instruction. Led by our in-house science expert, Mrs. Pearson, students on the Science Olympiad Team meet weekly in preparation to compete in hands-on, NGSS aligned STEM activities and project-based learning events.
Discovery Student Ambassadors, Grades 3-5
Students in the three pictures below are members of the Rama Road Elementary Discovery Ambassador program. In Fall, approximately 40 students work with Discovery Place facilitators to imagine, design, test and build their dream playgrounds of the future for Rama Road Elementary. Students presented their dream playgrounds at Discovery Place in Uptown Charlotte and communicated their design thinking & learning to an authentic audience.
