Some challenges required building instruments to test scientific theories, while others like a forensic test, provided stories and clues for teams to deduct who committed a crime.

Andy Roth, who headed Northview’s two teams comprised of 30 kids, said this is an exhibition  competition to see how students ranked before participating in regional and state tournaments. The tests are in accordance with the National Science Olympiad organization.
