The Everest Collegiate Science Olympiad team achieved the best results to date at the 2018 Oakland County Regional Tournament. Despite having the smallest team – 10 members instead of the allowed maximum of 15 – EC students competed in all 23 events and took home an impressive number of medals. More importantly, their season was an overwhelming success! Our students committed to and completed their projects, developed new skills, and forged new friendships, all while having fun learning about science and engineering.
The Everest team achieved Top Ten finishes in the following events:
Optics (Second Place): Kyle Smith, Alex Czarnecki
Helicopters (Fourth place): George Reichert, Katya Dominguez
Mousetrap Vehicle (Seventh Place): Kirsty Liu, Kevin Meehan
Write It Do It (Seventh Place): Kyle Smith, George Reichert
