TJ Students Compete in Science Olympiad Tourney

Thomas Jefferson Elementary School recently sent 13 fourth-grade scientists to the Science Olympiad Regional Tournament.

Over the course of two days, the students participated in 14 events. Student scientists examined leaf specimens, identified insects, built barges to hold cargo items, altered variables in a formula for “gunk,” solved math puzzles, answered questions related to NASA Mars missions, made readings using scientific weather instruments, and more.

TJ’s team was made up of Charlie Adams, Alec Autor, Megan Boesen, Alexis Holewinski, Sam Klemic, Sneha Parthasarathy, Olivia Pilson, Nick Sharrer, Elisabeth Snyder, Matthew Sperry, Katherine Stevens, Anuragi Thapliya, and James Trombo.

Parthasarathy and Pilson came home with medals for their showing in the Weather or Not event.
