Voyager Academy Science Olympiad News, August 19, 2018



Science Olympiad is an extracurricular academic competition in which students grades K-12 compete in STEM-related events.  The topics encompass anatomy, biology, chemistry, physics, earth science, geology, mechanical engineering and technology.  Teamwork and group learning are a major emphasis.


If your child is interested in science and would like to participate, fill out the Voyager Science Olympiad interest form so that we can connect with you.  Science Olympiad is open to all Voyager students who want to be more involved with science!
