On Dec. 3, more than 50 students representing West Babylon’s Science Olympiad teams competed in their first national virtual Science Olympiad competition.
Three of West Babylon’s teams competed in the Dick Smith virtual tournament, a national tournament in Pennsylvania. West Babylon teams represented three of the 75 teams in this event. One West Babylon team competed in the Boyceveille virtual tournament, a sponsored national tournament from Wisconsin.
This West Babylon team was one of 165 teams from throughout the country competing. From making videos of building events, such as catapults and planes, to working together to answer online exams, West Babylon students showed true team spirit as they strove to do their best against teams from throughout the country.
