On Saturday, April 2, the Science Olympiad Team competed, along with 30 schools, at the Kansas Science Olympiad Tournament, on the Wichita State University Campus, Wichita, KS. The competition was really fierce, we compete with not only schools our size, but with large schools with over 1000 students.

For the past 32 years, Science Olympiad has led a revolution in science education. What began as a grassroots assembly of science teachers is now one of the premier science competitions in the nation, providing rigorous, standards-based challenges to 7,400 teams in 50 states. Science Olympiad’s ever-changing line-up of events in all STEM disciplines exposes students to practicing scientists and career choices, and energizes classroom teachers with a dynamic content experience.
