CHS at 2018 State

Science Olympiad is a regional, state, and national science competition in which school-based teams of up to fifteen students compete in twenty three events across various science fields. In previous years, Curtis High School students prepared for and competed in events spanning fields such as astronomy, anatomy, chemistry, entomology, geology, physics, and mechanical engineering. In addition, our students competed in several building events, constructing such items as a hovercraft, a robotic arm, and an award-winning electric vehicle. The Science Olympiad program is a wonderful opportunity to involve students in all disciplines of science and continue their learning well beyond that of the classroom. A detailed description of our club may be found here. A promotional video can be found here.
