Fourteen 6th, 7th and 8th grade students from LMK Middle School qualified at the Lower Hudson Valley Science Olympiad and earned an invitation to compete at the New York State Science Olympiad. Congratulations to the four students who received medals at the state competition: Atharv Gandhi and Mizuki Shimatani (Crave the Wave), Isani Mitra and Ron Blaustein (Road Scholars). Science Olympiad at LMK is a club where students prepare for competitions against other middle schools regionally and across the state. This is the first year LMK students advanced to the state competition where student teams compete in five categories: Life, Personal, Social Science, Earth & Space Science, Physical Science & 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.
