2012-13 Science Team Continues Strong Performance in State Meet
Saturday, March 23, 2013
Weston placed 6th out of 44 teams in the state! Congratulations to:
Alisha Ukani, Andrew Li, Brian Yue, James Joutras, Jason Bui, Jason Schwartz, Jin Byun, Joanna Tao, John Jansen, Jonathan DelGizzi, Joseph Picard, Jun Byun, Pravina Samaratunga, Srishti Lulla, William Kretschmer, & Zarina Nip.
This was truly a team effort as students compete in 25 events working as pairs of a range of topics—everything from forestry knowledge to physics. They also have to build and practice with devices of their own construction. Scores from each event were then ranked and assigned point values, the point values then combined to give our overall score and rank as sixth. Special recognition goes to all the first-timers we had this year--who really worked hard and placed very well in difficult events.
We had a number of students place in the top ten in their particular event.
