Laker Science Olympiad - the team to watch!

The 2016 team


At regional competition, Lakers qualified

for the state tournament.

This is a first for Laker Science Olympiad!


The state tournament is April 30 at MSU.

This hard-working team doesn't need luck on its side - it just needs science.



Go Green! Go White!

A look back at the 2014-15 school year, filled with great success!

This meet had 36 teams from various areas  of the state - many of the schools there were much larger than Lakers.

Eastside Invitational (Sterling Heights)


At this invitational, the Laker Green and Laker White teams did a great job competing against the top schools in the state.  Many of the Laker events ranked in the top 20.    

Awards were won by Jenna Smith and Brittany Hatfield for Mission Possible (pictured above with their ribbons).


Laker Science Olympiad...bringing everyday science to life
So...what is Science Olympiad, anyway?

Science Olympiad competitions are like academic track meets, consisting of a series of 23 team events in each division. Each year, a portion of the events are rotated to reflect the ever-changing nature of genetics, earth science, chemistry, anatomy, physics, geology, mechanical engineering and technology. By combining events from all disciplines, Science Olympiad encourages a wide cross section of students to get involved. Emphasis is placed on active, hands-on group participation.
