Hundreds of Students Face Off at Regional Science Olympiad

Posted: Updated:
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va (WVIR) -

Nearly 1,000 students from across the commonwealth showed off their skills at a hands-on science competition in Charlottesville on Saturday.

Charlottesville High School's BACON Club, which stands for Best All-Around Club of Nerds, hosted this year's regional Science Olympiad.

Students from the elementary, middle, and high school levels faced off in knowledge-based and engineering events.

“The engineering events are really fun to kind of see how you stack up,” said Ryan Cox, a senior at CHS. “It's a lot of work, but it's really enjoyable when you get the result you're looking for.”

This is the second year in a row that Charlottesville High School has held the statewide tournament.

The event ended with an awards ceremony to honor the top competitors.
