Congratulations to our Science Olympiad Team
Congratulations to the Science Olympiad team who took 3rd place out of 20 teams at the state competition this past Saturday. This is the highest finish any Central team has accomplished in the history of Glencoe. Of the 23 events, team members placed in the top 5 in 9 of those events. Special recognition goes to the state champions in experimental design: Cassie, Li, Will C, and Nathan Z.

Congrats to the Science Olympiad Team
Congratulations to the Central Science Olympiad team for their 4th place finish in the regional competition. Olympians medaled in 11 of 23 events. This qualifies the team for the state competition at the University of Illinois on April 22nd. Their coach, Mr. Brian Sitz states, “They prepared very well and have a better appreciation for how hard they have to work to see the results that they are looking for. I think they will be even more driven over the next month and a half to modify, redesign, and study to achieve some new goals that we will establish.” Thank you to our coaches and families for supporting our young scientists. Join us in wishing the team well in April. View more photos here.
