    Science Olympiad     takes home the        bronze

    Science Olympiad Takes Home the Bronze

    We are so proud of our future scientists and engineers here at Nelson.  Under the leadership of Mrs. Oyakawa and Mrs. Diaz, these fine Olympiads really showed off their stuff at the annual Science Olympiad event at Occidental College in Los Angeles on March 2, 2019!  Seventeen students, grades 4-6, were selected by application, to be a part of this amazing team.  They meet with their coaches twice a week to research, collaborate, design, learn, and prepare for this big event...They scored with high marks and earned a BRONZE medal...(our students will always be GOLD to us)!

    For more information about the actual event that took place, click on the link below.  Congratulations to our Nelson Olympians...some of Nelson's finest!
