Science Olympiad Success

Science Olympiad Teams

The Ohio Science Olympiad was held on April 11 and Worthington was well represented.
 
The Worthington Kilbourne and Thomas Worthington teams faced off against 40 other teams from around the state.
 
The Ohio Science Olympiad is a statewide program dedicated to improving the interest of all students in the ever-changing world of Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).  A strong emphasis is placed on active, hands-on participation to assist students in their overall social development, leadership, and problem solving skills, in an effort to motivate and energize students to excel in and out of the classroom. 
 
At the event, WKHS finished 19th overall and TWHS placed 24th. Earlier this year in regionals, Kilbourne finished 3rd and Thomas was 6th.

6th place in Chem Lab (George Liu, Audrey Shih)
6th place in Forensics (George Liu, Eric Wang)
9th place in Bridge Building (Danielle Chan, Noah Zhang)
9th place in Mission Possible (Clarissa Goldsmith, Megan Coogan)
