Canterbury Team Alpha Places Third, Qualifies for State Science Olympiad
Team Alpha will represent Canterbury at the upcoming Florida Science Olympiad State Tournament after placing third at the Regional Science Olympiad, hosted at Canterbury.
A total of nine teams from Gulf Coast High School, North Fort Myers High school, Archbishop McCarthy High School, Dunbar High School, and Canterbury squared off in 23 science events, ranging from anatomy and physiology to physics related topics. Canterbury had two teams compete in the event, Team Alpha and Team Delta.
"We faced our fiercest competition ever in the Science Olympiad," said Canterbury science teacher Jeff Carstens. "This is the most teams we have ever had competing in our region."
Team Alpha (Lara K. '23, McLaren B. '22, Gabby S. '23, Isaiah A. '22, Maya C. '22, Devon B. '22, Ishaan A. '23, Arnav A. '25, Aaron S. '24, Emilie C. '22, Aleef C. '25, Max B. '23, Mia A.
