WLMS Science Olympiad is a competitive academic team designed for students with a strong curiosity in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Students train in up to four of 23 events, which focus on topics such as anatomy, tower building, and map analysis. Each team member must maintain a Science Olympiad notebook, purchase materials for individual events, and attend weekly training sessions. In February, eighteen team members will be selected to represent WLMS at a regional competition.
