On March 11, more than 400 students from 17 Long Island schools gathered at R.C. Murphy Junior High School in Three Village for the regional Science Olympiad. Students took part in several science-related events – from flying planes, to coding, to building roller coasters.
One of the teams from P.J. Gelinas Junior High School in Three Village came out on top, earning a bid to the state competition. A team from R.C. Murphy Junior High School also earned a ticket to states by placing fourth. The middle school division state competition takes place next month in Syracuse.
Science Olympiad is known as the premier team STEM competition in the United States. It seeks to engage and challenge students in STEM through various levels of team-based, collaborative and competitive tournaments.
