Raiders Compete at Science Olympiad

The Science Olympiad team from Essex District High School competed at the University of Windsor on October 17, 2019. The team took part in a variety of activities based in biology, chemistry, computer science, physics, math and engineering for a $1000 per student scholarship 1st place prize. The 12 participants could be seen running across campus, completing these timed challenges based on their Grade 11 university level education. 


Mrs. Palazzolo was very proud of the performance of these students, so much so that they plan to compete in the University of Guelph competition in May of 2020.  "Although we did not take home any medals, this group of grade 12s really showed their Raider spirit, resilience, and grit throughout these fun science-based competitions. We will continue training every week and continue learning about the various Sciences and Maths, in order to bring some good competition to Guelph's Science Olympiad. Keep an eye out for your fellow Science Olympiad reps, and support them in fundraising for Guelph!" - Mrs. Palazzolo.
