March 17, 2017: Fayetteville-Manlius School District’s Science Olympiad teams are taking their science, technology, engineering and math skills to the next level. 

Following top-place finishes at regional and state competitions, F-M’s middle and high school Science Olympiad teams are advancing to the next round of tournaments. Eagle Hill and Wellwood middle schools’ teams will next take on the New York State Science Olympiad Championship in April and Fayetteville-Manlius High School’s team will travel to the 2017 National Science Olympiad Tournament in May.

On March 4, Eagle Hill Middle School’s Science Olympiad team won 13 events and placed first overall in the Mid-state Division B Regional Competition at North Syracuse Junior High School. At the same tournament, Wellwood Middle School’s team achieved third place overall and received 20 event medals. 

Both teams will compete for the state title on April 7-8 at East Syracuse Minoa High School.

On March 10 and 11, Fayetteville-Manlius High School’s varsity Science Olympiad team faced off against 54 teams at the New York State Science Olympiad Division C Competition at LeMoyne College. F-M placed first at the event and earned a spot in the 33rd Annual National Science Olympiad Tournament, which is set for May 19 and 20 at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio.

“The students gelled into a very special team,” F-M High School varsity Science Olympiad adviser Joshua Buchman said. “I am confident they will represent F-M very well.”

The national event is the pinnacle of achievement for 120 of the country's best Science Olympiad teams, according to the competition’s website. 

Science Olympiad is a team competition that involves individual tournaments in events applying to Earth science, biology, chemistry and physics.
