Science Olympiad is a national extracurricular program that engages students in exploring various specialty fields in science at a deeper level than they may encounter in their traditional science classes.
Each year the Science Olympiad committee offers over 20 different events ranging from astronomy to anatomy and forensics to building events such as the bungee drop. Students compete in these events at the regional, state and national levels.
For the past four years, LCS has participated in Science Olympiad. Students train for their events with the help of volunteer coaches, which include LCS parents and teachers, MSU science students and community science experts.
This year, Lansing Christian sent a team of 24 students to the regional competition at Lansing Community College. We placed fifth or better in 10 of the events, and came in fifth place overall! Way to go Pilgrims!
We are always on the lookout for parents, alumni and other members of our community to help coach these events. If you are at all interested in learning more, contact the LCS main office and we’ll be in touch!
