Our Lady of Victory Science Olympiad team going to state competition

Our Lady of Victory’s Science Olympiad team fared extremely well in the regional competition at Gordon College in Barnesville recently. They placed second overall in Division B (Grades 6-9) and qualified for the state tournament on March 27 at Augusta State University.

Science Olympiad is a nationally recognized program that offers students an opportunity to experience the practical applications of science. Students compete in 23 events which range from building a glider where time aloft determines the place, building a trajectory that is capable of using elastic to launch a ball towards two targets, performing lab-based analyses to solve a crime, and analyzing an outbreak in an event sponsored by the CDC to name but a few. OLV students placed in the top four schools in 19 of their 23 events.
