The Case Western Reserve University community is known for thinking beyond the possible. This column aims to capture a slice of campus life. This week, Science Olympiad participants on campus were interviewed during an event at CWRU.

Q: What are you looking forward to the most today?
A1: Lying here in the sun (laughs). I got freaked out when we first came here, because it’s so big. Why is it so big?
A2: It is a college campus…
A1: It’s huge.

Q: In which events are you participating?
A1: I’m in Green Generation and Bridges. I would’ve been in Invasive Species, but it was at the same time as Green Generation.
A2: I’m just a runner for today, so I just help people get the supplies they need. I’m running around, making sure they have everything.

Q: What did you guys learn while studying for your events?
A1: I’ve learned a lot more about ecology, evolution and populations. It’s interesting seeing how what we do affects the earth.
A2: I learned how eco-efficient wind turbines are, and in anatomy, I learned most of the bones in the human body. In Food Science, we learned how to make butter, cheese and ice cream, which was really fun. In Crime Busters, we learned how to solve crimes and use chemicals to identify different substances.
