Waynflete places first and second at 2021 Science Olympiad
Waynflete places first and second at 2021 Science Olympiad
During two weeks in April, thirty Upper School students competed in the state Science Olympiad Tournament, which was held virtually this year.  The events include tests of content knowledge, the scientific process, and engineering build events. Waynflete’s two teams took ten first place medals and placed first and second overall.  Although we usually place in the top three schools in the state, this is the first time that Waynflete’s teams have come in in the top two spots.

Highlights include wins in Wright Stuff (airplane), Maren Cooper ’23 and Reed Robinson ’23;  Chemistry Lab, Selina He ’21 and Maren; Disease Detectives, Julia Werner ’22 and Blythe Thompson ’22;  Forensics, Anna and Sam Yankee ’21; Gravity Vehicle, Henry Wagg ’22 and Henry Moore ’22; Sounds of Music, Aidan Kieffer ’21 and Joey Ansel-Mullen ’21; Detector Building, Jacob Curtis ’22 and Orion Keierleber ’23; Dynamic Planet, Cece Marshall ’22 and Vera Shattuck ’22; Ornithology, Oscar Herrera ’22 and Liam Slocomb ’22; and Water Quality, Levi Lilienthal ’21 and Charlie Horner ’23.

The teams were coached by science teachers Wendy Curtis and Carol Titterton.  Congratulations to all involved!
