The NEBO Science Olympiad Invitational was held at MMHS last Saturday. Teams from all over the state and Idaho came to compete in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math. It was a great competition, and we had a lot of fun. Our two school teams placed 3rd and 4th place overall. The winner was the Treasure Valley Home School team from Idaho. We are excited for our next competition later this month at Snow College. The state competition is on March 31st.
Here are some notable individual results:
The Science Olympiad team competed at the Uintah Invitational over the weekend and took first place! This was the first competition of the year and the team is excited about defending their state title. Here are the individual results for each event from the competition:
The team had a great time at the national science olympiad competition at Wright State University the weekend before school got out. This is the third year that our team has competed at nationals, and it was one of our best yet.
Here are our best individual results:
5th in Electric Wright Stuff (airplane) - Adam Syndergaard and Madyson Meeks and Lauren von Bose
16th in Rocks and Minerals - Delaney Rose and Julie Carlson
17th in Write it Do it - Joseph DelaCruz and Joshua Green
21st in Optics - Gideon Hale and Philip Richey
Here were the high scoring individual events:
Astronomy – FIRST PLACE, Delaney Rose & Logan Marks
Astronomy First Place Delaney Rose & Logan Marks
Astronomy Third Place Adam Syndergaard & Luke Huntington
Chem Lab First Place Michaela McCown & Sierra Jensen
Our Science Olympiad team competed at Snow College this Saturday and took first for our region. This qualifies us for state where we hope (fingers crossed) to win our third state title in a row. Congratulate the following students when you see them:
Adam Syndergaard Gold Towers, Bronze Helicopters, Bronze Astronomy
The Science Olympiad team placed first overall for the second year in a row. The kids worked super hard (most of them were new to this), so this is quite the accomplishment! Science Olympiad is a catch all competition that includes events in science, math, technology, engineering, and even music and technical writing for some events. The team doing well is a reflection of the whole school, not just the science department - thank you for all of your support.
Nationals is in a month from May 18th-22nd.
The Science Olympiad team competed last Saturday against 20 other high schools in the state in 19 events in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math. They took third place in Materials Science, Second place in Invasive Species, It's About Time, and Wind power, and they took first place in: Anatomy, Bottle Rocket, Electric Vehicle, Bridge, Experimental Design, Robot Arm, and Wright Stuff.
