Katy ISD Junior High School wins State Science Olympiads


I am very happy to announce that on April 13 and April 14, 2012 Beckendorff Junior High School as part of Katy ISD in Katy TX took the State of Texas Championship in Science Olympiads.


Beckendorff Jr. HS will now advance to the National Science Olympiads on May 18 -19, 2012 being held in Orlando, Florida at the University of Central Florida.


The State Championship team consisted of 21 students being in seventh grade through ninth grade and were coached by Jennifer Curtis and Lonny Smith.


A perfect score in the State Championship competition would have been 23 points and Beckendorff recorded a score of 50 points while the second place team and defending State Champs had a score of 133 points. Now that was an extremely impressive victory.

Bekendorff Jr. High School Katy TX


There are so many great reasons to live in the Katy area and so little time to discuss all these items. Katy ISD is a truly a phenomenal school system with some many things to offer to their students; these include great sports, academics, clubs, activities, teachers, educators plus numerous other things and now a State Championship in Science. A few years ago, my oldest step son was on the academic decathlon team at Seven Lakes High School (first year Seven Lakes ever had a team) and they won the State Championship!  


Congratulations and a big shout out to all the students on the Beckendorff team, all coaches, parents and followers. You folks rock! As a point of reference my youngest step-son attended Beckendorff. I point this out as many potential clients ask me if I actually live in the area.The answer being Yes since 1999 and my step sons have both attended Katy ISD schools.


Good luck at Nationals and wouldn’t be something if Beckendorff won a National Championship!

Al, John and Dale,

Thanks to all of you for your comments and continuing support. Beckendorff Jr. HS deserves recognition and some publicity for their impressive work. Science is very important field and all research shows US is sadly lagging behind other countries in Science and math proficiency.

Congratulatins, Beckendorff! Do I take it, then, that the lowest score wins since a perfect score would be 23 but Beckendorff had a 50?
