The first competition nears for the Science Olympiad team and the preparation is picking up pace.
The members of Science Olympiad are excited, yet stressed for the competition according to club president Shannon Kerr ’20.
“Recently we’ve been practicing for our first invitational on Dec. 15 in Kalamazoo,” Kerr said. “We are going to spend the night in a hotel and the next morning we will compete against other schools in different events.”
Science Olympiad has been preparing for several weeks both in and out of school by planning, building and fundraising for the invitational, according to Kerr.
“On Saturday, we had a building session to get all of our impound stuff finished,” Kerr said. “We have also been selling bagels of Friday mornings in the main halls.”
According to Kerr, the team is hoping for a spot at States again. They competed at the State competition last year.
“It’s really exciting because we have a fresh team and invitationals are good practice for regionals,” Kerr said. “Come buy a bagel on Friday mornings if you would like to support us.”
