Congratulations to St. Ed's Science Olympiad Team who competed at the State Tournament last weekend. The team placed fourteenth overall out of 40 teams and consisted of a majority of first-year team members. From building devices that keep time using no electricity or batteries and balsa wood planes powered by a rubber band, our student scientists and engineers challenged their skill sets this season and earned the following reputable placements during their State competition.
Top 10 Placements:
4th place medalists--WiFi Lab: Will Gonzalez & Santiago Vanegas
8th place--Anatomy & Physiology: Carter Riordan & Elijah Molseed
8th place--Chemistry Lab: Mark Hauptman & Jacob Cook
