Students from all three IPSD High Schools will be headed to the state Science Olympiad tournament in Champaign, on April 13. This is the 7th consecutive year that students from all three high schools have qualified for the state tournament. Science Olympiad teams from IPSD have quietly been dominating local competitions.
Science Olympiad is an event that involves 23 different competitions that cover topics related to Life Science, Physics, Chemistry, Earth/Environmental Science, Inquiry, and Engineering topics. The competition consists of written tests, lab events, building events, experimental design, and coding.
