Accolades

  • Science Olympiad team

    • The South Middle Science Olympiad Team earned a total of 13 medals at the Long Island Invitational Olympiad Tournament on Saturday, Dec. 7. 

    This competition included the top 43 Science Olympiad teams from middle schools across the tri-state area. The nine-hour tournament was comprised of 23 events in which students demonstrated their ingenuity and knowledge in science, engineering, and technology.

    In addition to earning team points for successful challenges, medals were awarded to the top competitors in each event. South Middle students won medals as individuals and in pairs for challenges such as Dynamic Planet, Heredity, Rube Goldberg Machine, Ping Pong Parachute, Water Quality, Write-it Do-it, and Meteorology.

    Advisors for the South Middle Science Olympiad Team are Tobias Hatten, South Middle science department head, and Randy Lane, technology teacher. 

    According to Mr. Hatten, the Science Olympiad provides a team-sport atmosphere where students work together towards a goal. “It makes science social as it is in the real world,” explains Mr. Hatten. “The experiences from Science Olympiad could be the spark that allows students to become scientists and engineers to solve the biggest problems of the future!”
