Science Olympics: Celebrating the Excitement of Science and Engineering

On November 10, Lakehead University’s Science Olympics Northwestern Ontario provided a unique opportunity for curious high school students to learn through doing.

Local students gathered at Lakehead University to participate in the 8th annual Science Olympics, a one-day event that challenged Grades 9-12 students to apply their knowledge of science, engineering and math in creative ways. Exciting events run by university professors and students added a competitive nature to the experience. 

“Science Olympics events are not easy, that’s why they promote teamwork – each team must apply their scientific knowledge and skills to achieve success,” said Dr. John O’Meara, Dean of the Faculty of Education.

Science Olympics Northwestern Ontario is a joint venture by Lakehead’s Faculty of Education, Faculty of Science and Environmental Studies, and Faculty of Engineering. For more details and photos, see the Science Olympics Northwestern Ontario Facebook page
