WMS and WHS Students participate in the Science Olympiad

Winnebago School students in grades 6th through 9th participated in the Illinois Science Olympiad Regional Tournament at Rock Valley College on March 10th.  Our team had an amazing time at the Regional competition and brought home eight top six finishes for medals.

Science Olympiad competitions are like academic track meets, consisting of a series of 23 team events reflecting the ever-changing nature of genetics, earth science, chemistry, anatomy, physics, geology, mechanical engineering and technology.  By combining events from all disciplines, Science Olympiad encourages a wide cross-section of students to get involved.  Emphasis is placed on active, hands-on group participation.  We would like to thank and appreciate the Thermal Fisher Scientific for sponsoring our team and providing some of our supplies.  Congratulations to our team.

That's very impressive for their first year!
