Top Brookwood science team goes to National Science Olympiad

Brookwood High School's Science Olympiad Team was recognized by the Gwinnett Board of Education at a recent meeting for the team’s 9th consecutive state championship.

Science Olympiad offers students the opportunity for interscholastic competition rooted in science. It is one of the largest national science competitions, with more than 7,000 teams participating around the country each year. Science Olympiad tournaments are composed of several events which require students to apply various science disciplines such as biology, earth science, chemistry, and physics, along with technology, problem-solving, and teamwork.

This past spring, the Brookwood Science Olympiad team competed in the State Science Olympiad at Emory University. In a competition that featured the 24 best teams in the state, Brookwood took home top honors, winning its 11th Science Olympiad state championship. On its way to victory, Brookwood earned more medals than any other team in its history. This 1st-place team finish allowed Brookwood to represent Georgia in the National Science Olympiad at Cornell University, where the team was successful in many events featuring the nation’s top science talent. Team members include Gloria Adeola, Aashay Amin, Jiyuan Dong, Kaylee Fang, Jacquelyn Gwynn, Grace Guo, Alan Huynh, Ivy Li, Jack Li, Max Sommerville, Rachel Song, Rebecca Xiong, Hollis Zeng, and Alex Zou.

Chattahoochee High School’s Science Olympiad team had taken second place at the State tournament, winning 14 medals overall, including 6 gold medals. The competing team consisted of Akshay, Alex, Anna, Atharv, Brian, Ellie, Emilie, Eric, Marylyn, Raj, Roy, Sakshi, Seohyun, Theo, and Varun. They also participated in the National Science Olympiad. Both Chattahoochee and Brookwood placed in the top 6 in several events.
