Science Olympiad 2016

On Saturday, March 5th, Pioneer Middle School competed in the regional Science Olympiad competition held at Waterfront Elementary in Buffalo.  The competition included twenty different events involving areas of science.  Some of the events, such as Air Trajectory and Elastic Launched Glider, involved bringing a building project to the competition.  Other events included labs or testing in areas such as astronomy, geology, and zoology.

Lots of studying and preparation went into the competition.
The teams had a successful day, placing tenth overall.  Medal winners are:
Fifth Place in Crime Busters: Katarina and Heidi

Fifth Place in Dynamic Planet: Kelsey and Cora

Fourth Place in Food Science: Nick and Derek

Second Place in Reach for the Stars: Dustin and Cora

Fifth Place in Write It/Do It: Evan and Madison
Most importantly, the Pioneer team took home the Lake Erie Niagara Spirit Award.  This award goes to the team that displays teamwork, kindness, and good sportsmanship throughout the competition.  Pioneer went above and beyond to be polite to others and assist teams that needed help.  This is the second time in four years that Pioneer has taken home the Spirit Award. 

Pioneer Middle School wins the Spirit Award!
