LMK 

Science Olympiad:

Would you like to take on a problem-solving challenge in science and technology?  Do you enjoy testing your knowledge of science?  If so, this is the competitive team for you. 

The LMK Science Olympiad is a competition-based club in which students are selected to participate.  All our welcome to the first club meeting to find out more information about the club and the preliminary exam used for selection.  Once selected, you will join a team as either a competitor or substitute.  You will then prepare to compete in 2-3 of the 23 team events.  The technology competitions usually require teams to design and build something.  The science competitions usually ask you to take a knowledge test.  Each year, we send our team to the local Westchester competition in early spring.  It is here where we meet with other school competitors and compete for a chance to head to the New York State and National Science Olympiad competitions.
