Hello, MSSM community!

As many people know, MSSM offers a myriad of STEM related extracurriculars. One of the activities that we have been offering for a while is competing in the Science Bowl. Once a year, the U.S. Department of Energy hosts a National Science Bowl for young scientists to participate in. Teams participate in several matches to determine the rankings. Each match consists of two teams in a division and approximately 20 questions are asked. Students are challenged with questions ranging from topics in physics, biology, astronomy, and many other branches of science. Last weekend, MSSM sent two teams of five to the Maine Regional High School Science Bowl. After a long day of matches, MSSM Team A was completely undefeated in Division X and MSSM Team B had only two losses in Division Y. In order to determine which teams went to the finals and which went to the semifinals, the two MSSM teams competed head-on! The two teams definitely put up a great fight, giving each other some friendly competition. In the end MSSM team A went on to the finals and team B went on to the semifinals. Team B finished in 4th place after competing with Greely and MSSM team A finished second to Cape Elizabeth. MSSM did excellent as a school, being the only school with both its teams making it to the semi-finals. Great job, MSSM Science Bowl!

Hello, MSSM community!

After a week of rest and relaxation, MSSM students have returned from February break. Before we left, J-Term off-campus exhibition occurred. During J-Term at MSSM, many students take the opportunity to participate in an exciting internship. Internships ranged from working in a prosthetics clinic, to law offices, to software engineering firms. Internships are a great opportunity for students to get a taste of the career they may be interested in. Other off-campus J-Term opportunities were trips to the Bahamas, Japan, or Jackson Labs. Students in the Bahamas and Jackson Labs had a concentration in biology, while students in Japan visited our sister school Hikone-Higashi. Students greatly enjoyed watching the presentations and hearing about the great time that our fellow Penguins had!

We're back from February break and that means we've just completed the longest, coldest stretch at MSSM––what some people call "the dark ages". Now, though, things are looking up. With only three weeks to go before the next break, students are busy but in good spirits. Progress reports release tomorrow, and many students have tests or projects due next week that they can be seen completing and preparing for. Next weekend is Parents Weekend, and many students are looking forward to that. The weekend also includes an SAT test date, an MSSM Board of Trustees meeting, and the yearly meeting of the MSSM Parent's Association. There's lots to do, and students are ready to do it!
