Go, Bulldogs! Our Middle School Science Olympiad Team became the first in school history to qualify for a State Competition.
Science Olympiad (SO) is a nonprofit organization devoted to improving the quality of science education, increasing student interest in science and providing recognition for outstanding achievement in science education. SO puts on a series of rigorous academic competitions throughout the year, which require knowledge of science concepts, process skills and science applications.
Our Varsity and Junior Varsity Teams earned spots at the Regional Competition after taking home several awards at an Invitational held here at British International School of Chicago, South Loop.
For each event at the Regional Competition, the top students received medals according to their rank. Judges then combined the scores of each team during the event to determine an overall team score. Check out the results below. Both BISC teams performed well and Varsity placed fourth, which means they’re headed to University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for the Illinois State Competition on April 15 and 16. Good luck!
