The Hahnville High School Science Olympiad team competed at the Region I competition on March 26th.

The students competed in 23 different events that encompassed all areas of Science. For some of the events students had to build projects prior to the competition which included wooden towers that had to hold a bucket of sand, mousetrap vehicles that had to travel forward then backwards, and a rube Goldberg device called Mission Possible,  that had to release a balloon that had a sign attached. Other events were test like events and labs such as Chemistry lab, Forensics, Ecology, and Experimental Design.   Adam Wayment and Gavin Colley placed 4th in a dueling robot event called Sumo bots.  Katelyn Cancienne and Brianna Hue placed third in the mousetrap vehicle event and Taylor Petit and Heather Valdin placed third in the test event called “fossils.” This is the 16th year that Hahnville High School has competed in the Science Olympiad.
