Science Olympiad Competes at Pembroke Hill Invitational
On Saturday, March 30th, the DHS science olympiad team competed in the Pembroke Hill invitational tournament at The Pembroke Hill Upper School. Fifteen area high schools competed in 23 events ranging from building and engineering challenges to knowledge and skills testing across the scientific disciplines. DHS ranked 9th overall, and we took home six placing ribbons/medals (the most in one tournament this season).
