Here’s some belated good news from science team as we wrap up our regular competition season and head into States! Please congratulate the Science Team on their January and February performance in Science Olympiad events. Students competed as a team of two to four in a variety of rotating academic challenges.  We have surpassed our previous records in both the invitational and local league performance.
We competed in January in the MIT Science Olympiad where we placed 78th out of 150 schools. This is a big accomplishment as the competition included many teams that regularly compete at the national level.
We placed in the following events: 
Circuit Lab: 16th place of 150 teams: Anthony Cui & Richard Li
Machines: 17th place of 150 teams Anthony Cui & Neil Malur
Write it Cad it: 11th place of 150 teams Chloe Zhong
We competed in January in the Harvard-Brown Science Olympiad where we placed 36th out of 115 schools. This is a big accomplishment as the competition included many teams that regularly compete at the national level.
We placed in the following events: 
Circuit Lab: 13th place of 115 teams: Anthony Cui & Richard Li
Sounds of Music 3rd place of 115 teams: Anthony Cui and Daniel Zhu
In our WSSL league, we finished the regular season 4th place out of 18 schools.
In January and February we competed in the following events:
Machines: 2nd place (Anthony Cui, Richard Li, Neil Mallur, Jessie Yuan)
Disease Detectives: 2nd place (Anna Lian, Megan Malur, Jacob Ye)
Water Quality: 9th place (Vincent Lian, Angela Shen, William Middlezong)
Botany: 2nd place (Risa Nawa & Angela Shen)
Astronomy: 4th place (Anthony Cui & Jessie Yuan)
Anatomy & Physiology: 9th place (Erin Huang, Arjun Jasuja, Jessy Wang)
Solar Power: 8th place (Ben Chen, Joy Han, Zander Ingare, Bryant Zeng)
 
We also have a large number of other members compete as a B team for the same events. These folks are an equal part of the team and A/B Teams are determined by tryouts for each event organized by the science team leadership. The whole team has been very dedicated and has been up to the challenge of taking on the Science Olympiad!
 
I’m sure more good news will follow after our State meet!
 
Best,
Mary Liu & Chris Chiodo
