Upper School students finish second in the Maine Science Bowl
Ten Upper School students recently competed in the Maine Science Bowl—a quiz game-type competition sponsored by the Department of Energy. Question categories include physics, math, chemistry, biology, energy, and Earth and space science.
Waynflete’s two teams performed well during the morning’s three preliminary rounds. One of our teams, led by Maren Cooper ’23 and supported by Nik Chaney ’24, Max Shurman ’24 , Mira Levine ’24, and Lydia Birknes ’25, competed in the afternoon’s elimination rounds on their way to the final round, in which they were edged out by Cape Elizabeth. Congratulations for a strong second-place finish and a good showing all around! We were even named “the friendliest team” by one of the officials. The teams were coached by science teachers Carol Titterton and Wendy Curtis.
