Science Olympiad Team brings home 2nd Place from Chattahoochee Invitational

On Saturday, Fulton Science Academy Private School Science Olympiad Team competed in the Chattahoochee Invitational in Johns Creek. This was the first tournament of the season and included teams from throughout the metro Atlanta area, including rival Dodgen Middle School. The FSA team took first place and many FSAPS students earned medals in their events.

Head Coaches Pam Walsh and Gloria Stathos were pleased with the team’s performance. “This early in the season it’s difficult to be prepared for each of the 23 events. Many of the building events require much trial and error. Students were calibrating their devices all week and to have a working device for each event this early in the season is quite an accomplishment,” said Mrs. Walsh.

Individual awards were earned by the following students:
