Students Test Their Knowledge In Regional Science Bee

A group of Middle and Upper School Lynx had the opportunity to showcase their science knowledge recently when they competed in a science Bee hosted by International Academic Competitions (IAC). 

The virtual competition was held at the beginning of November, and Jonathan Goldfeder '24Abhiram Battini '25 and Sachin Lyons '26 qualified to move on to nationals in December. Usually, this is held in Chicago, but this year it will be hosted online. The students who participated qualified back in January, but they were unable to compete in the regional qualifier until now due to the quarantine. 

"We are so proud of these students and I salute them for their hard work," said Head of Middle School Dr. Robert Lewis. "They represent the best of what our Middle School has to offer, and I look forward to celebrating their accomplishments at the national level."

The science bee is a quiz competition for individual students from Elementary School through High School. Competing students have a chance to use their familiarity of science to challenge others in their respective age divisions in a unique test tournament setting consisting of both qualifying stages and a National Championship. 

"We want to thank all students who participated in the 2019-2020 Regional Science Bee," said seventh-grade science teacher Brooke Hoffman. "They did an awesome job and we are proud of them!"
