Wheatley Success at the Yale Invitational Science Olympiads!

While many members of our school were enjoying a late morning sleep-in at the start of a long weekend, Mr. Jim Abdale and Ms. Alexis Blondrage boarded a bus with twelve Wheatley students heading to Yale University for a day of competition in the Yale Invitational Science Olympiad! Science Olympiad competitions permit students to engage their scientific and creative minds on challenges in a competitive environment. Congratulations to 11th graders Christopher Shen and Andrew Zuckerman for earning 2nd Place in the Geological Mapping competition.
