Sixth graders in Jefferson County take on Science Olympiad all week long

West Virginia

Charles Town Middle School sixth graders were given the opportunity to take their education outside of the classroom for their annual Science Olympiad. 

Over 220 students, including special education classes led by volunteers participated in science related activities from chemistry to earth science on Wednesday at Sam Michael’s Park in Harpers Ferry. One of the stations included dissecting owl pellets to see what they have been eating. Organizers say the hands-on learning experience provides students with real world learning experience. 

 “We have the sheriff’s department, we have people from the Department of Human Resources and they’ll all be doing presentations,” said Chris Coughlin, Assistant Principal at Charles Town Middle School.

The Science Olympiad goes all week long and features different Jefferson County middle schools. A total of about 750 sixth grade students will go through the Olympiad this week.
