See images from the regional Science Olympiad competition that was once again fully in person

The Region 12 Michigan Science Olympiad made a triumphant return to a fully in-person event, welcoming about 700 middle school and high school students to the Allendale Campus.

Grand Valley is a longtime host of the tournament that celebrates the wonder of scientific discovery and allows students to showcase their STEM-related work.

Here are some scenes from that day.
