From Brendan Wallace, Grauer Science Olympiad Coach:
Grauer's High School Science Olympiad team competed at their first competition of the season on Saturday, January 19 at Great Oak High School in Temecula, accompanied by coaches Brendan Wallace, Paulina Davis-Fisher, and Peggy Gardner. Team members Ava I. '21 and Amanda C. '21 competed in 2 events, winning 3rd place ribbons in their "Fossils" event and 6th place ribbons in their "Geologic Mapping" event. Team members Joshua B. '22 and Samuel L. '22 competed in 4 events - "Anatomy & Physiology", "Codebusters", "Fermi Questions", and "Write It, Do It". It was a great first event for the team, and we're looking forward to the San Diego Science Olympiad on March 16!
