Amazing Science Olympiads

Townline’s Science Olympiad team did an amazing job competing in the recent Elementary Science Olympiad Competition in Arlington Heights. Students competed in seven events and medaled in five of the competitions. The team placed first in the aerodynamics competition, first in rock hounds, first in junk cars, second in science password, and third place in the weather competition. Thanks to the hours of coaching from volunteers.

In preparation for the official Science Olympiad on Saturday, 74 students in Grades 4 and 5 at Townline showed off their science prowess at a school Olympiad test run event. Students are judged on their knowledge of rocks, aerodynamics, weather matters, and naming scientific powders.
