Why can you never trust atoms? They make up everything! But you can trust the Huntington science team, as on February 17 they won first place at Los Angeles County Science Olympiad regionals at Antelope Valley College.  

The HMS science olympiad team competes against other schools at Science Olympiad competitions in multiple different events. Each event consists of two people who work together against the other schools. At the Antelope Valley regionals, HMS competed against 26 total schools including the likes of Oak Avenue Intermediate School in nearby Arcadia, Fulton & Alsbury Academy of Arts and Engineering, and many others. There are are 15 people in the HMS team, each doing two or more events ranging in a wide variety of scientific subjects. Out of the 23 total events, HMS placed first in 9 events and second in 8 events, only not placing 6th place or above in 4 events. Placement for the team ranking is determined by adding the ranking of each individual event, meaning that the lowest point score wins. San Marino achieved a low score of 82 points, with the second place team (Oak Avenue) racking in 162 points, and the third place team (Fulton & Alsbury) getting 162 points as well.

Winning first place at the regional competition, the team is eligible to compete at the Southern California state competition on Saturday, April 7. It will be hosted by Caltech and Polytechnic School in Pasadena. With many other outstanding schools competing at the state competition, HMS is in for a challenge. Aaron Lee (8) who won three gold medals at the regional competition, says “State will be a great challenge.” Last year, HMS won second place at the regional competition winning first place in many events, but at state they only medaled in one event. For the latest results, the city of San Marino and Huntington Foxes will be keeping their eyes on the science team. Or, at least I will be keeping my ion them.
