MS Science Olympiad Finds Success at Regionals and More!

Congratulations to our young Science Olympians!

Exciting news from our Science Olympiad teams! In December, all 19 of our Science Olympians competed in the Rustin Invitational, which drew teams from the Northeastern US. That competition was held remotely, and the 24 events used video submissions and online proctored exams. The team placed 8th place overall, thanks to their engineering of a glider and launcher to maximize flight time. Then, earlier this week, the Middle School Science Olympiad team competed at the Regional Tournament, held in Camden, NJ. We had some outstanding results yet again as the team achieved 7th place overall, including 3rd place finishes in the “Anatomy and Physiology” and “Codebusters” competitive sessions. Science Olympiad consists of events including engineering and building, lab skills, problem-solving, and material mastery. D-’Es HumanEd qualities, which  include collaboration, perseverance, and creativity, are consistently being leveraged and bolstered.

Regional Tournament Results: 
3rd place: Anatomy and Physiology, Owen McBride ’28 and Samir Parikh ’29 (answering questions about human body systems)
3rd place: Codebusters, Haeley Cole-Boksner ’29, Alexa Wanich ’28, and Irs Fung ’28 (deciphering a variety of descriptions)
5th places: Fossils, Chelsea Clarke ’28 and Selina Shen ’28 (identifying and answering questions about fossils)
5th Place: Optics, Sehyun Chang ’29 and Samit Parikh ’29 (manipulating a laser and reflectors to navigate obstacles and meet a target)
Team Placement: 7th place overall (engineering a glider and launcher to maximize flight time)
