The Fulton Science Academy Private School Science Olympiad Team travelled to its first out of state tournament of the season, competing in the Friendship Christian Invitational in Lebanon, Tennessee this past Saturday, January 10, 2015. The team left school on Friday morning and headed to the Adventure Science Center in Nashville where they participated in the “Amazing Reactions” program demonstrating many exciting (and sometimes explosive!) chemical reactions. Afterwards, students explored the museum including the Adventure Tower, Body Quest, and Space Chase exhibits.

The competition began early Saturday morning with students unpacking and calibrating their building devices and making last-minute tournament preparations. After six intense hours of testing-taking and device-testing it was all over and students and coaches anxiously awaited the awards ceremony.

Although there was tough competition with teams from three states and several nationally-ranked teams, Fulton Science Academy students were called up for honors in 21 of the 23 events and was awarded the 1st place team trophy.

Head Coaches Pam Walsh and Gloria Stathos were thrilled with the team’s performance. “Out of state tournaments are always a challenge,” said Mrs. Walsh. “Students and coaches really have to work hard prepare. Packing up building devices for travel is tricky as they tend to be somewhat fragile. All in all our kids did great and had a wonderful time.”
