Academic Derby is a quiz bowl style competition offered to our Fifth Graders. Elementary Academic Derby features students from ALL Onslow County Elementary Schools. Students compete against each other in a Jeopardy style setting and answer questions that are based on their age level and draw from the curriculum and from cultural happenings. The Derby season is split in sessions between the Elementary schools in Onslow County. Practices are held afterschool and admission to this club is based on an entrance test that is scored. Student’s must maintain above a “C” average in all coursework to remain on this team.
General skills that are practiced afterschool are states and capitals, geography, periodic table, presidential trivia, mathematics skill and drill and review of parts of speech. Additional study is part of this club; however most team members enjoy this club experience. For information on this team and it’s rules please contact Mrs. Centeno
