Congratulations to Nordonia Hills, Hudson, Revere and Stow-Munroe Falls high schools for sending teams to the Ohio Science Olympiad tournament in Columbus next month.
They were the top four teams in a regional competition on March 5 at the University of Akron that comprised 14 teams from public and private high schools and middle schools. The state tournament will be held on April 30 at Ohio State University.
The Science Olympiad is a national nonprofit organization devoted to improving the quality of science education, increasing student interest in science and providing recognition of 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.
The Science Olympiad Tournaments are academic interscholastic competitions, which consist of a series of 23 individual and team events students prepare for during the year. These challenging and motivational events are well balanced between the various science disciplines of biology, earth science, chemistry, physics, computers, and technology. There is also a balance between events requiring knowledge of science facts, concepts, processes, skills and application.
