Across Helena, science is “killin’ it”!!
Helena High School and CR Anderson Middle School took first place in the State Science Olympiad Tuesday at MSU Bozeman.
These kids put in many hours for the past two months before and after school, at lunch, and on the weekends to perfect their skills.
Events ranged from engineering challenges like building a working hovercraft or roller coaster, to lab events like crime scene analysis or experimental design and written test events like anatomy and physiology or disease detectives.
Students competed in teams of 15 against 50 teams at each level from around the state.
Capital High took 2nd place overall with a score of 99 and HMS and Clancy School earned high scores in many of the individual events!(final scoresheet: http://www.montana.edu/ehhd/smrc/mtso/index.html).
Congratulations to all!! We are so proud of you!
