Carmel Valley: Torrey Hills shines at Science Olympiad

Torrey Hills Elementary School Science Olympiad teams won 8th place at the Regional Science Olympiad competition held last weekend in San Diego. This Division B competition is mainly for middle schools, with 6, 7, 8 and 9th grades. Thirty students in 5th and 6th grades, representing two teams, the Black Hawks and the Red Hawks, competed in 23 events. This is the largest regional meet in the country with 85 teams competing, and Torrey Hills was the only elementary school.

Students worked many hours, before school, after school and on weekends, building towers, aquifers and trebuchets and studying anatomy, meteorology, fossils, microbes, diseases, and shooting bottle rockets and running battery buggies.

This competition has inspired and motivated the students to look for more challenges in science.
