by Anne Donofrio-Holter
Congratulations to the Rosemead High School Science Olympiad team for placing third (out of 40 teams) in Division C at this year’s Los Angeles County Science Olympiad. The Science Olympiad is “an international, non-profit organization devoted to improving the quality of science education, increasing student interest in science and providing recognition for outstanding achievement in science education by both students and teachers.”
The Science Olympiad tests students in approximately 23 scientific areas including biology, earth science, chemistry, physics, computers and technology.
“Our students have been training hard since the beginning of the school year for this event through classroom lessons and other training exercises,” said Dr. Brian Bristol, Rosemead High School principal. “Their hard work and dedication, along with that of their teachers, has certainly paid off.”
Congratulations to medal winners Kristine Chen, Kevin Cheng, Alison Wong, Sandy Lee, Howard Luu, Calvin Ha, Devin Luu, Grand Huynh, Karen Chen, Lapman Hoi, Jessica Tran, Annie Lee, Kevin Luong and Abigail Nguyen.
