Science Olympiad Success

A team of twelve Upper School scientists recently competed in the regional Science Olympiad competition, mentored by US science teacher Alex Siragy, who reported their success, explained the scoring process and handed out medals during Morning Meeting. Teams earn points for events they compete in - our team competed in two thirds of the events. Teams are penalized for events they do not compete in. Tandem's team scored in the middle of all competitors despite not competing in all events, right below Charlottesville High School. Specific medal-winning results included:
  • 3rd place in the Detector Builder event: Mekhi H and Devin M
  • 3rd place in the Ping Pong Parachute event: Cora M
  • 5th place in Code Busters (Ciphers) event:  Josie F, Emi M and Mekhi H
  • 6th place in Trajectory: Jacob C and Dylan P
Congratulations to our great Science Olympiad team!!
