DMS team places sixth in Mid-State Science Olympiad


DMS Science Olympiad teamMarch 30, 2017 -- The Driver Middle School Science Olympiad team came in sixth place out of 22 teams and brought home 12 individual medals from the 2017 Mid-State Regional Science Olympiad, which was held March 4 at North Syracuse Junior High School.

According to the organization’s website, Science Olympiad is an international non-profit organization devoted to improving the quality of science education, increasing student interest in science and providing recognition for outstanding achievement in science education by both students and teachers. These goals are accomplished through classroom activities, research, training workshops and the encouragement of intramural, district, regional, state and national tournaments.

One of the goals of the Science Olympiad is to elevate science education and learning to a level of enthusiasm and support that is normally reserved only for varsity sports programs.

Science Olympiad competitions are like academic track meets, consisting of a series of 23 team events in each division (Division B is middle school; Division C is high school). Each year, a portion of the events are rotated to reflect the ever-changing nature of genetics, earth science, chemistry, anatomy, physics, geology, mechanical engineering and technology. By combining events from all disciplines, Science Olympiad encourages a wide cross-section of students to get involved.

Here's the complete list of DMS students who received a medal or ribbon for their work.
