Science Olympiad Competes at State
The Avon High School Science Olympiad Team represented Avon at Indiana's State competition early in March. Although they did not bring home any awards from the competition, that didn't diminish their enthusiasm or take away from the fun they had competing together.
If you're unfamiliar with Science Olympiad, the organization's website provides a helpful description:
Science Olympiad competitions are like academic track meets. ... Each year, a portion of the events are rotated to reflect 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. Through Science Olympiad, students, teachers, parents, principals and business leaders bond together and work toward a shared goal.
Congratulations to Mr. Rohrbach and the AHS Science Olympiad Team for a great season.
