After a year of hard work, the Ladue Middle School Science Olympiad team finished 14th in the nation at finals!

Training for the event began in August and some of the kids even worked on events over the summer last year trying to get to this point.

“The coaches are very proud of the students’ determination and work ethic,” head coach Martin Long said. “Thanks to all the teachers—Kindergarten and up—who contributed to their success by instilling such a wonderful love for learning!”
