Every year during the first week of March the Regional Science Olympiad convenes at Kalamazoo Valley Community College. There approximately 18 schools compete for top ranking in various science competitions. These events range from building robots, towers, airplanes and various devices to academic tests of knowledge. Mary Middleton is the high school coach for White Pigeon. Every year fifteen students join the team and pick two or three events in which to compete. Students begin preparing for the event in the fall. The day arrives quickly and everyone has a great time meeting and competing with students from Cass, Van Buren and St. Joseph counties.
