Romulus Community Schools 5th and 6th grade students enrolled in the Accelerated Curriculum & Enrichment Program, known as the ACE Program, participated for the first time in the Wayne-Oakland County Science Olympiad. The Wayne-Oakland Science Olympiad is an organization, dedicated to expanding the science curriculum beyond the classroom, creating a technologically-literate workforce and providing recognition for outstanding achievement by students. Science Olympiad is a team competition that requires knowledge of various science topics and engineering skills. Barth Elementary Teachers Tom Gibb-Randall and Lewis Smith led the team along with the assistance of parent volunteers who helped coach the students in nine events. The team of students (pictured above) competed against dozens of schools and qualified for the final competition, held at Schoolcraft College. “As a first year team we are pleased of the success that our team had and we look forward to improving” said Principal David Thompson. Two students from the team Alexis Pyles and Ofona Likaka earned 2nd place medals overall in the Coding event.
