Science Olympiad
Wyoming Valley West Students participated in the 2015 Science Olympiad.
Science Olympiad is an American elementary school, middle school and high school team competition in which students compete in 'events' pertaining to various scientific disciplines, including earth science, biology, chemistry, physics, and engineering. Over 6,700 teams from 50 U.S. states compete each year. There are multiple levels of competition; invitational, regional, state, and national. In addition, some states or private groups offer 'invitational' tournaments which serve as practice for regional and state competitions. Teams which excel at regional competitions advance to the state, and then to the national level. Winners later receive several kinds of awards from ribbons to trophies.
Wyoming Valley West has entered two teams in the competition. The ‘B’ team is comprised of 6th through 9th grade students and the ‘C’ teams members are in 10th through 12th grade. WVW faculty assists the team members with instructions and questions regarding their events but the students do the majority of work on their own.
