Did you know that Pasadena High School has a Science Olympiad Team? This is their first year of competition.
The 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. The Science Olympiad tournaments are rigorous, academic, interscholastic competitions that consist of a series of individual and team events which students prepare for during the year.
Each year there are approximately 23 challenging and motivational events that are drawn from the various disciplines of biology, earth science, chemistry, physics, computers and technology. There is a balance between events requiring knowledge of science facts, concepts processes, skills and science applications.
The 33rd Annual Los Angeles County Regional Science Olympiad is Saturday, February 23rd at Rio Hondo College located at 3600 Workman Mill Rd., Whittier, CA 90601. The competion lasts all day. Pasadena High School, along with 54 other schools, is part of Division C. PHS is team #C27. Additional information on the Los Angeles County Regional Science Olympiad can be found on their website.
