SHS Students Make Triumphant Return to Science Olympiad
Over the winter, Solvay High School returned to the 35th Annual Science Olympiad Competition held at Le Moyne College! Mrs. Lisi and Mrs. Sherlock generated interest in bringing back this competitive science club after Solvay had pulled out from the competition several years ago.
The team, composed of nine Solvay High School students encompassing all four grade levels, competed in a wide range of scientific events and competitions, including hand-written assessments, collaborative group work, and designing and engineering their own products.
The two top-scoring events for Solvay included “Anatomy & Physiology” and “Thermodynamics.” Rachel Maloney and Talya Toussaint competed in the physiology event, and were assessed on their understanding of the human cardiovascular, lymphatic, and excretory systems. Alien Ali competed in the “Thermodynamics” contest, which involved the engineering of an insulating device that was designed to retain heat, in addition to completing a written test on thermodynamic concepts.
Mrs. Lisi & Mrs. Sherlock are very proud of the hard work their team put into this season, and look forward to beginning preparation for next year’s competition! Thank you to all of our students for their dedication, hard work, and positive attitudes!
