Torrey Hills science students place 7th at regionals


The Torrey Hills Science Olympiad Team won seventh place at the regional competition at Rancho Bernardo High School recently.

Thirty-seven schools competed, with 116 teams in total at the regionals.

Thirty TH students, in grades 5 and 6, competed in 23 events, some of which were entomology, meteorology, air trajectory, Robo Cross, Road Scholar and simple machines. Students took some written tests and built devices and tested them at this competition.

This was a great experience for elementary school students who enjoyed learning material at a very high academic level and competed with middle-school students. Many of the students came home with ribbons and medals.

Hanan Zhang and Shreya Choksi took first place in anatomy. They worked hard and were coached by Hanan’s mom, Julie Broadwin. The school is very proud of all the team members and is now preparing for the state competition on April 4 in Anaheim.
