On April 10th, Clark Science Olympiad secured its 10th state title at the virtual Nevada State Tournament. Clark's 4 teams took 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 7th, taking home 13 of the available 15 gold medals. After an unprecedented 17-tournament preseason, we are so proud to have seen our preparation pay off. Congratulations to all our competitors for their hard work! As Nevada's reigning champions, Clark Science Olympiad is excited to represent Nevada with our best performance yet at the National Tournament in May.
In March, Clark Science Olympiad competed in California's BirdSO Invitational and Wisconsin's Menomonie Invitational. At Bird, teams Clark 'Akikiki and Clark Lark flew up the ranks with Top 12 medals in 10 events. In Menomonie's MiniSO flight, Clark medaled 1st and 2nd place for a total of 18 events! Bird and Menomonie mark the last two tournaments of Clark's invitational season, and we couldn't be happier with our 11th place finish out of Bird's 121 teams and a 2nd place trophy from our friends at Menomonomonomonie. Onward to state!
FORWARD THROUGH FEBRUARY
In 3 weekends of back-to-back tournaments, Clark showed out for the month of February. It wasn't easy, but the team came away with 25 medals from Stanford and Berkeley's Golden Gate Invitational, Princeton Invitational, University of Michigan Invitational, and SOUP Invitational, and a 4th place team trophy from Princeton! We're so proud of everyone and have high hopes for the final two tournaments on the road to State.
Clark closed out January on the 30th at the Harvard-Brown and Duke University Invitationals! Thanks to these two tournaments for hosting great competition. Onward to February!
AM I TEA?
Clark squared off at our toughest tournaments this season with the MIT and Solon Invitationals on January 23.

We are proud of our team's hard work throughout the weekend—and it paid off: we were able to grab some medals in new events! Congratulations to our medalists in Circuit Lab, Machines, Codebusters, Experimental Design, and Geologic Mapping! Let's keep it up for next weekend!
RAMPING UP FOR 2021
Congratulations to our teams who competed at Mira Loma Invitational on January 9 and the UChicago Invitational on January 16. We started the new year with a 7th place finish in NorCal, bringing home medals in Codebusters and Ornithology. Let's ramp up as we continue into a long series of January and February tournaments!
2nd SOLVI IS A WRAP
