The time of year has come again! It’s time for the Olympics. The Science Olympics. It is D39’s second time competing in Science Olympiad and the students are stoked!
Science Olympiad, for those who don’t know, is an after-school program which students take hands-on classes that teach them about science. Each specific class is based on a different aspect of science, including engineering, physics, and chemistry. The classes each also have a theme that goes along with the subject of science, for example, Crime Busters, Bottle Rockets, Bio Process Lab, and Disease Detectives. Each class is unique and super fun!
Once you learn what class you’re in, you and your class trains for five months. After training, certain students are chosen to make up teams. Then, using all the knowledge you learned, your team competes against all types of teams, all around the region. This year’s competition is going to be on February 6, 2016 at Carlsbad High. It’s going to be exciting to know what place we get this year!
Overall, Science Olympiad is a great experience for everybody! Students have learned a lot and have had so much fun so far. It’s going to be an awesome year, and hopefully we will do great on the competition. See you there!
