LAB39 (formerly Science Olympiad)

See what 5th-8th grade Highcrest Middle School and WJHS students have been doing since their LAB39 courses began in December 2019.  They will be excited to show off what they’ve built, activities they’ve done, and lessons they’ve learned!

Courses included Sports Physiology, Do The Cube, Mystery Architecture, Matter Matters, Crave The Wave and more!







Thanks to the dedicated volunteer instructors for their time and effort to make LAB39 such a success.
