BRONXVILLE, N.Y. -- The Bronxville Middle School Science Olympiad club took home medals and placed sixth overall as a team when they showcased their skills at the annual Science Olympiad on Feb. 27 at Scarsdale Middle School.

The regional competition encompassed 15 study events on topics ranging from human anatomy to meteorology, optics and ecology.

It also included five building events that required students to build their projects ahead of time and bring them to the competition.

“Students had to build cars that carried an egg down a track and stopped before hitting a wall,” said eighth-grade science teacher Jean Windels, the club’s advisor.

“Other students had to build an air cannon that shoots a ping pong at various targets, while others built gliders, wooden bridges and Rube Goldberg projects.”

Ted Conway, Liam Heraty, Caroline Ircha and Bethany Lee earned individual medals in the “Write It, Do It” event.

In addition, Ircha and teammate Jude Haase- Puissant placed first in a separate event, the Scrambler. “It was a great competition that truly celebrated student accomplishments in science in addition to being a lot of fun,” Windels said.

The Bronxville Middle School Science Olympiad team consists of 19 students in grades six through eight.
