2019 Castro Valley Science Scholarships

were awarded to Yang-Jie (Jack) Qin and Yuri Overton!  The two of them have been competing in Science Olympiad since 7th grade at Creekside.  Last school year, Jack and Yuri were both SciOly Club Officers who helped run the club with 42 members.  Both Jack and Yuri just graduated in June 2019 with honors and will be attending UC San Diego and UC Berkeley in the Fall.  Congratulations & Good Luck!

SCIENCE OLYMPIAD is a premier national science competition, providing rigorous, standards-based challenges to 7,600 teams in 50 states. Science Olympiad’s ever-changing line-up of events in all STEM disciplines exposes students to practicing scientists and career choices, and energizes them with a dynamic content experience.

This year, Castro Valley has 9 Science Olympiad teams, three in Creekside Middle School, three in Canyon Middle School, and our former middle school students have formed three teams in Castro Valley High. This year, we are also forming Elementary School Teams.  (See the respective school links above.)

Science Olympiad is sports for the mind.  Kids “practice” for months for a regional competition in the spring, with the hopes to “make it to the state competition,” just like the athletes in school.

Students are challenged with STEM projects at a competitive level, thinking out of the box to come up with creative solutions. Students work together in teams, coached by parent coaches, some of whom are scientist and engineers. They develop a proud sense of accomplishment in knowledge acquisition and challenging build skills.
