Congratulations to the hard work of Rowland Unified's seven elementary schools that went to the Los Angeles County Science Olympiad over the last two weekends and brought home awards.
The Science Olympiad is an international, non-profit organization devoted to improving the quality of science education, increasing student interest in science and providing recognition for outstanding achievement in science education by both students and teachers. Each year there are approximately 23 challenging and motivational events that are drawn from the various disciplines of biology, earth science, chemistry, physics, computers and technology. There is a balance between events requiring knowledge of science facts, concept processes, skills and science applications.
Our students and teachers did an outstanding job preparing for this event. Here are the schools that went and how they placed:
