Tidewater Science and Engineering Fair–Way to Go, Dolphins!

OLHS is proud of our student researchers!

This past weekend, the Tidewater Science Congress hosted the 68th annual Tidewater Science and Engineering Fair.  32 Mathematics and Science Academy students represented Ocean Lakes High School at this year’s fair.  We are proud of all of those students who shared their original experimental or engineering design research, who answered questions posed by field professionals, and who exemplified the type of poised professionalism we hope all of our graduates will embody.
