The Elements, the middle school Science Olympiad team sponsored by Explorers Homeschool Academy, won sixth place at the State Science Olympiad competition on April 6, at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville.
The Elements competed with 18 public, private, and home schools. There are 52 middle school teams in Tennessee.
Officials said, "To place sixth is a true testimony of these student’s skill and determination. We are so very proud of each of them! If your homeschooled child has a love of science, the ability to study hard, and a desire to work with a dynamic team, consider joining The Elements."
Beginning in August, meetings will be Tuesdays from 4-5 p.m. at Bethel Temple Church in Hixson. For more information, go to http://ehamiddleso.weebly.com/join-the-team.html and http://elementaryscioly.weebly.com/sign-up.html.
