Math Olympiad

Math Olympiad stimulates enthusiasm and a love for Mathematics. Its purpose is to introduce important Mathematical concepts, teach major strategies for problem solving, develop Mathematical flexibility in solving problems, strengthen Mathematical intuition, foster Mathematical creativity and ingenuity and provide for the satisfaction, joy, and thrill of meeting challenges. Prep is done by parents. Please visit the website for more information.

Virginia Math League

Math contests give students an educationally enriching opportunity to participate in an academically- oriented activity and to gain recognition for mathematical achievement. Each contest covers topics appropriate to the contest grade level. The key is to encourage students to enjoy a challenge and to learn from it to find problem-solving discussions stimulating. This challenge is what prompts many youngsters to enjoy puzzle books! The enrichment we provide is a positive experience for students. Prep is done by parents. There will be a next level contest for any sixth grader who earns a perfect score on a first come, first serve basis. Parents will be notified about this and it is up to them to register and prep their child for the next level competition. Please visit the website for more information.

Continental Math League

CML is an opportunity to learn mathematics and enjoy it at the same time. Students participating require above-average reading comprehension and analytical reasoning capabilities. Their computational skills should be appropriate to their grade level. Prep is done by parents and materials may be purchased at the CML website above.

National Language Arts League

The contest for 4th grade consists of 35 multiple choice questions appropriate to that grade level. The 5th and 6th Grade contests consist of 50 multiple choice questions based on the following topics: spelling, vocabulary, reading comprehension, analogies, and grammar. We believe our approach to these topics will provide a meaningful as well as enjoyable learning experience for your students. Each contest has a time limit of 35 minutes. Prep is done by parents. Please visit the website for more information.

National Science League

The contest for 4th grade consists of 35 multiple choice questions appropriate to that grade level. The 5th and 6th Grade contests consist of 40 multiple choice questions. The multiple choice questions which comprise each contest are based on factual knowledge as well as students’ understanding of scientific processes. Each Contest has a time limit of 35 minutes. Prep is done by parents and sample material is available at the above website.

MAA AMC 8

The AMC 8 is a 25-question, 40-minute, multiple choice examination in middle school mathematics designed to promote the development of problem-solving skills. The AMC 8 provides an opportunity for middle school students to develop positive attitudes towards analytical thinking and mathematics that can assist in future careers. Students apply classroom learned skills to unique problem-solving challenges in a low-stress and friendly environment. Prep is done by parents and materials are available for purchase at the website above.

AEOP E-Cyber Mission

The annual eCYBERMISSION competition is a great way to implement the Next Generation Science Standards into 6th, 7th, 8th, or 9th grade science class. This competition provides opportunities for students to engage in the Scientific and Engineering Practices, and work towards Engineering Performance Expectations.

The eCybermission program gives students the chance to explore how science, technology, engineering, and mathematics work in their world. It emphasizes on STEM and a chance for students to engage in science and engineering practices makes eCybermission an excellent opportunity to all students. Parents or volunteers will coach the team and team size is limited to 3 to 4 members only. All parent volunteers send email to navy.enrich@gmail.com before the registration deadline.

VASO Division A

Division A is conducted by a sister organization of VASO for preparing elementary school students for higher level science competitions. A team of 14 to 42 students participate in 32 events in multiple topics. Preparation is usually done in teams of 2 or 3 students coached by a parent or volunteer.

VASO Division B

Science Olympiad is a school-based program that is a wonderful opportunity for students who are interested in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) to improve their understanding of these subjects and work together in teams to learn new skills.
It’s a team endeavor and there are 23 events for teams that cover life sciences, earth sciences, physical sciences, technology, and the nature of science. It is an event run by volunteers and coaches. Parents of registering students must plan on coaching the students for one or more events. As a first time participant, Navy can register a team of 15 students.
