Over spring break, the Providence Day Science Olympiad team placed fifth in the Division B (Middle School) regional tournament!
The North Carolina Science Olympiad is the largest K-12 STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) competition in the state and the largest Science Olympiad program in the entire country.
While only the top three teams will advance to the state tournament, any event that was awarded a first place medal receives an invitation to compete with other First Place Overall Winners (FPOW) at the state tournament held Friday, April 21 and Saturday, April 22 at North Carolina State University.
Check out all of the incredible events our students participated in. We can’t wait to see the Codebusters and Crimebusters teams at the state tournament, competing against 45 other teams from around North Carolina. Great job, Chargers!
