Science Olympiad at LMK is a club that meets throughout the school year to prepare for competitions against other middle schools regionally and across the state. In total, fourteen LMK students qualified at the Lower Hudson Valley Science Olympiad and earned an invitation to the New York State Competition in Eastern Syracuse, where 40 teams competed in 23 different events. This is the first year LMK has advanced to the state competition. Student teams compete in five categories: Life, Personal, and Social Science; Earth & Space Science; Physical Science and Chemistry; Technology & Engineering; Inquiry & Nature of Science.
The goal of the New York State Science Olympiad is to engage and challenge students in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics through team-based, competitive tournaments throughout New York State.
