EHS students place second at regional Science Olympiad
Lorraine Lowrey and Ethan Garrett placed second in the Rocks and Minerals competition at the regional Science Olympiad event at Andover Central High on February 25.
The Science Olympiad is an all-day competition, consisting of approximately 20 subject events.
Some events involve designing and constructing a device to perform a task while others involve participating in lab procedures to draw conclusions. Other events require students to take a written test.
Students train by studying science, practicing team dynamics, and design, construct and modify devices for optimal performance of specified tasks.
The Rocks and Mineral competition that Lowrey and Garrett participated in consisted of a written test with a rock/mineral identification lab component.
