Congratulations Smith Science Olympiad Team

Over 1000 high school and middle school students from all over  Michigan state competed for a representing the state at national tournament.

Smith MS  team came in overall 3rd position. In this process we beat all regional schools in Metro Detroit once again including  nationally ranked school Meads Mill MS  from Northville.

This was first time Smith ever beat Meads Mill in any State championship ever, no other Troy Middle school has managed this feat ever in last 5 years.


      While team narrowly missed chance to advance to nationals ( Only top 2  teams go )  - we did score best ever performance - including  medal positions in 16 out of 24 events more than double of what we usually get at state level tournaments. By all standards this was Smith's  best performance ever in Science Olympiad tournament.
