On February 22, 2014, students from Hollencrest Middle School competed against 39 middle schools in our first Science Olympiad Regional Competition at Occidental College.
Science Olympiad is a team competition where students compete in various areas such as biology, chemistry, and engineering. Hollencrest tested their knowledge in the events: Can’t Judge a Powder, Crime Busters, Experimental Design, Metric Mastery, Helicopters, Wheeled Vehicle, and Rotor Egg Drop.
Nathan Peralta and Zach Zhong earned a first place medal in the event, Can't Judge a Powder.
The team coached by Mrs. Roseli (Science Teacher) and Mrs. Lazo (Math Teacher) consisted of the following students: Damien Albitres, Bianca Aromin, Breanna Aromin, Jasslin Cervantes, Angelina Chiu, Alexis Huynh, Sebastian Jamil, Brandon La, Abraham Manrique, Ceslee Moradel, Miranda Munoz, Quia Necor, Nathan Peralta, Matthew Rasco, Cade Stewart, Chong Zhang, and Zach Zhong.
The Science Olympiad Team at Hollencrest Middle School started in October 2013 with our on-site Mouse Trap Wheeled Vehicle Competition. This mini competition allowed the students to showcase their building and engineering ability. The students continued to further their understanding and knowledge through weekly meetings, in which they researched, tested, built, and demonstrated their dedication. In January, Hollencrest had another on-site Crime Busters Competition, which allowed the students to showcase their expertise of the science process and inquiry skills.
After thorough examination of the students' knowledge, engineering abilities, and dedication, the coaches were able to choose the top 17 well-qualified GATE students in order to represent Hollencrest Midde School at the Competition. Through the support and dedication of students, parents, teachers, and administrators this year the 2013-2014 Science Olympiad was successful and a great learning opportunity for all students involved. The coaches and students are looking forward to next year's Science Olympiad.
