On January 31 the British School of Chicago hosted its first Science Olympiad invitational for six Chicago area schools. The invitational was comprised of 15 of the 20 events that will be held during the official Science Olympiad competition in March and was intended to help students practice and prepare for that event.

Students from BSC, Latin, Gwendolyn Brooks Middle School, Visitation Catholic School and Springman Middle School gathered at the school on a Saturday morning and eight teams - including two from BSC - worked hard on their events throughout the day.
