RAVENA-COEYMANS-SELKIRK — On Saturday, Feb. 4, the High School Science Olympiad team competed in the regional competition at Ballston Spa High School.

They competed against 18 teams from across the Capital Region in 23 events focused on scientific knowledge and engineering tasks. The events consist of different subjects across the STEM field, including topics such as biology, coding, astronomy, geology and more.

RCS finished in an 6th place. They were up against some much larger schools and medaled in almost half of the events.

While they are not advancing to the state competition, the team was able to make improvements from last year. The team moved up two spots overall and medaled in four more events compared to their trip to regionals last year. 

“The students did an excellent job,” said science teacher and Science Olympiad co-advisor Matt Miller. “I could not be more proud of the effort and expertise they brought to the competition last weekend. Their teamwork skills and attention to detail served us well!” 

Congratulations to the whole team and to these specific event winners on all their hard work!
