Thirty-two students left from Casady School on Wednesday for a flight that took them more than 1,200 miles east to Orlando, Fla., where they will compete this weekend in the National Science Olympiad Tournament.
The students are among more than 2,000 from across the nation who will compete in this year’s science competition.
“We are so excited to be representing Oklahoma in this way,” said Elizabeth Larsen, Casady Middle Division director. “Casady School is known for its academics but we also want to be known as an exciting and innovative school that prepares our students to excel in the 21st century.”
According to the National Science Olympiad Tournament’s website, students who compete are eligible for prizes, cash scholarships and professional development opportunities.
