Le Moyne College is preparing for a busy weekend as some of the sharpest minds in science come together to compete in the statewide Science Olympiad competition. High school students will put their skills on the forefront to test their science knowledge through tests, experiments, and events where they build devices.

According to Jamie Cucinotta, who is with the Science Olympiad, 54 teams from across the state are participating.

On the show, students for 4 local high schools showed off their projects:

  • Jamesville-Dewitt students Dan McGann, Luke Tarnow, and Cayla Dedrick showed us their robot arm.
  • Chittenango students Addison Phillips and Holden Lalor also showed off their robot arm.
  • Cicero-North Syracuse students Hannah Clary, Joshua Middleton and Matthew Fiel demonstrated their Electric Vehicle.
  • Fayetteville-Manlius students Will Shepardson and Shirley Zhang showed us their “It’s About Time” project as well as Protein Modeling.

The 2016 Division C New York State Science Olympiad Tournament is being held Saturday, March 12 from 9am to 3:30pm at Le Moyne College. The sessions are open to the public. There will be free parking in the “A” or “AA” lots, located at the Thomas J. Niland Jr. Athletic Complex, on Springfield Road.
