Students construct towers for the 2012 Science Olympiad.

Grant K-8school, participating in its second year with the San Diego regional Science Olympiad, will send two teams to compete on Saturday, February 4, 2012 at Rancho Bernardo High School and Bernardo Heights Middle School.  They roll out of town to represent their school among 28 schools, with 90 teams, from around San Diego County.

You’re invited to watch tower tests, trebuchet launches, mousetrap vehicles, bottle rockets and more.   Grant School Science Olympiad is grateful to the fantastic volunteer coaches who make this possible for Grant students.  The Science Olympiad is nationally organized around an annual, single day competition.  Coaches and students typically prepare and practice one to two hours per week leading up to the Olympiad. 

Anyone interested in this rewarding way to share a passion for science and mentor enthusiastic youth are asked to contact Denise Santoro, head coach for the Grant School Science Olympiad at
