On Thursday, March 15, students across GRs 6-8 will represent Old Orchard at the Synopsys Science & Technology Championship taking place at the San Jose McEnery Center in downtown San Jose. Student projects range from Life Sciences to Physics (see below for more detail). During the event students will present their projects to 3-4 judges, and, as always, we expect our students to do well. They have spent many hours on research, documenting the scientific method and creating academically and aesthetically clear presentations of their findings. We are very proud of them!
Parents of participants and the general public may view all projects between the hours of 5 - 6 pm (after the judging is complete). Please join us in supporting Old Orchard students!
