Canyon Crest Academy students in Carmel Valley win 2016 Regional Science Olympiad Competition
Six Canyon Crest Academy (CCA) teams participated recently against 26 local high schools in competitions featuring 23 events balanced between earth science, biology, chemistry and physics. The CCA teams brought home a total of 71 awards, including 11 gold, 5 silver, and 6 bronze medals. Science Olympiad is a national non-profit organization dedicated to create a passion for learning science by supporting district, county, state and national level competitions with an emphasis on teamwork and a commitment to excellence. With this achievement, CCA earned first place in the regional competition and thereby qualifies for the state Science Olympiad tournament to be held in April.
