The 6th Grade went to the Science Olympiad held at Fort Hayes State Univ in KS. The kids are in groups or pairs and have different assignments like Robotics, Ecology, Fossils, etc. Erin had a few categories but one of her biggest was Ornithology. She was very nervous the night before as she was to be able to identify bird calls… lots of them. The actual competition went better than she hoped. She placed 1st in Ornithology! Yeah Erin!!!

Glad Jennifer asked ;) That's what I assumed (using context clues), but I've never heard "ornithology"

Great job Erin!
