When most people think of science not everyone becomes ecstatic. That’s not what Science Olympiad students think. Science Olympiad employs cross-cutting concepts in all its standards-aligned events, building 21st-century skill sets essential to today’s science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) workforce. There are 23 events each in Division B (middle school) and Division C (high school), providing a platform for students to apply and display a wide variety of talents, from design and prototyping to technical writing, to chemistry lab skills. This year Brooklyn Amity had the chance to take part in Division C which allowed them to travel to ivy league colleges such as Harvard, Yale, and Cornell University. Although they faced many challenges the members of Science Olympiad won more than 5 medals at the competitions. To these members Science Olympiad is more than just a club, it’s a team that turned into a family. Even though it is ending soon they will always and forever be a science family.
