The Maple Moun­tain High School Science Olympiad team won the state ti­tle dur­ing a com­pe­ti­tion last Satur­day at the Uni­ver­sity of Utah. The team com­peted against 31 other high schools from across the state in the ar­eas of science, tech­nol­ogy, en­gi­neer­ing and math.

Of the 24 dif­fer­ent events that MMHS com­peted in, they took first place in six events, sec­ond place in four events and third place in three events.

“With an em­pha­sis placed on STEM in ed­u­ca­tion, our stu­dents are do­ing just that. Our stu­dents are win­ning state in many of the STEM cat­e­gories,” said Coach Miller.

The events where MMHS placed were: Air Tra­jec­tory: Ja­son and Adam Syn­der­gaard, third place. As­tron­omy: Ja­son Syn­der­gaard and Sam Dal­lon, first place. Bridge Build­ing: John Baads­gaard and Hei­dyn von Bose, first place. Cell Bio: Rachel By­bee and Michaela McCown, first place. Com­pound Ma­chines: Scott Grif­fin and Keith Hill, sec­ond place.

Dis­ease De­tec­tives: Rachel By­bee and Sam Dal­lon, first place. Dy­namic Planet: Sam Dal­lon and Jonny Stites, sec­ond place. Ex­per­i­men­tal De­sign: Ja­son and Robert Nay and Becca Bair, first place. Fos­sils: John Baads­gaard and Daniel Tol­ley, first place. Game On! - Daniel Tol­ley and Michaela McCown, third place. Hy­dro­ge­ol­ogy: Jonny Stites and Hei­dyn von Bose, sec­ond place. Its About Time: Michaela McCown and Scott Grif­fin, sec­ond place. Mission Pos­si­ble: Scott Grif­fin and Ryan Smith, third place.

The MMHS Science Olympiad team will now move on to the na­tional com­pe­ti­tion which will be held next month at the Uni­ver­sity of Ne­braska-Lin­coln where they will com­pete against the 60 best teams in the na­tion.
