Science Olympiad
Students compete with other middle schools from Fresno County in engineering projects and academic tests. It is exciting for students representing their schools when given a building challenge or conquering an academic test to prove to be an expert.

Science Fair

Students choose a topic and ask a question as their problem. By using the Scientific Method, they collect information; create a hypothesis; test their hypothesis; record their data; and draw a conclusion. After they have finished, they place all their information on a display board and have a log book explaining their experiment in detail. The Board and log book are judged at the Central California Regional Science, Mathematics and Engineering Fair.
