Science Olympiad

Science Olympiad is an international nonprofit organization devoted to improving the quality of science education, increasing student interest in science and providing recognition for outstanding achievement in science education by both students and teachers. These goals are accomplished through classroom activities, research, training workshops and the encouragement of intramural, district, regional, state and national tournaments. Competitions are held in March.  

The 2016 Varsity Science Olympiad Team competed at the Illinois State Science Olympiad Tournament held at the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana.  The team as a whole placed 25 out of 46 participating schools.  Individually, team members earned second place in Bridge Building and in Optics.
