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!
That's a wrap for this week's edition of "So This Happened at MSSM!"
