Lower Merion records breakout performance at National Science Olympiad

Lower Merion Science Olympiad recently wrapped up one of the club's best seasons in school history with an outstanding all-around performance at the 34th Annual National Science Olympiad Tournament hosted by Colorado State University. The National Science Olympiad Tournament is the pinnacle of achievement for 120 of the country's best middle and high school Science Olympiad teams.

Founded in 1984, Science Olympiad is one of the premier science competitions in the nation, providing rigorous, standards-based challenges to 7,800 teams across all 50 states with the goal of increasing K-12 student and teacher participation in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

The Aces finished in 15th place overall collecting nine top-ten finishes, including a gold medal performance by Michael Cheng, Sebastian Perez-Lopez and Genevieve Oliver in the Experimental Design event. The Lower Merion contingent also earned the 2018 DuPont Team Enterprise Award, which recognizes a breakthrough performance by a high school team this year.
