SNELLVILLE - 11Alive's Education Express sent an early morning at Brookwood High School highlighting the school's science courses.
Members of Brookwood's award-winning Science Olympiad team displayed their talents on live television during the morning show. The team is only five years old, but has won the chance to go to state competition every year and has won top honors in four of those years. The team has also competed at the state level for five years.
In addition, Brookwood was one of the first schools to offer courses in bio-technology to help students prepare for jobs in their area. The 13-county area of metro Atlanta is called the "Innovation Cresent" because it is home to 85% of the bio-technology jobs.
11Alive is giving Brookwood High's Principal, Debbie Dees a check for $500 as a reward for the school's innovative programs.
Throughout the week, 11Alive is spotlighting five metro Atlanta schools for their innovation.
