CES Participates in Auburn University's Science Olympiad
April 22, 2021
(CES) - Cahaba Elementary School recently entered two student teams in the Elementary Science Olympiad Competition sponsored by Auburn University. Thirty-eight students practiced for the fifteen competition events. Students studied for these events virtually. They dedicated their own time and energy to learn more about science. They used the websites and a Schoology class that was prepared for them by their coach, Mrs. Rish. They also took notes on their own and created flash cards, journals, and more to prepare to represent Cahaba in the virtual tournament.
Students gathered in the cafeteria mid-April 2021 to showcase their discoveries. Tests have been sent to Auburn and we await results.
