Physics and Astronomy


The required location is dependent on the nature of the events. At the elementary level, it would be simple to hold the events in the classroom. The material required would be minimal and you could make use of everyday household items.

At the secondary level, it might be difficult to incorporate the Olympics directly in the classroom environment. It might be simpler and more successful to organize the Olympics as an extra-curricular event. A science club or a group of interested students and/or teachers could put together an Olympics. The school building itself could provide the places in which to hold the events. For example, you could make use of the school gym, cafeteria, hall-ways, classroom, parking lot and football fields.

Other locations outside the school ground could include community and/or shopping centres, universities, parks and even home or church basements. There should be plenty of space and the public should know the location of the event.
