New Albany Science Olympiad was recently featured in a story by This Week: New Albany.
Our Invitational is of particular interest to our local community. Most people, including some new district administrators are unaware how big our program really is. They are always pleasantly surprised to find out that Central Ohio’s largest and most rigorous STEM competition is hosted by the New Albany Plain Local School District!
It’s actually one of the largest STEM competitions in the state!
This year, over 1500 middle and high school students from 8 states will compete in 23 science events. Our guest list includes 9 national qualifying teams as well as the best teams from all of Ohio.
The public is invited to observe many of our engineering competitions beginning at 8:30 am on Feb. 21 at the New Albany Learning Campus. Events include flying gliders, various vehicles, robot challenges, and even an event featuring student built air cannons that use only gravity as a power source!
