Waynflete Repeats as State Science Olympiad Champs

Science Olympiad Team ’14
Waynflete won the State Science Olympiad tournament for the second year in a row! Yesterday, 30 Waynflete students completed in 23 different science and engineering events at the University of Maine in Orono. Our kids built elastic launched gliders, compound machines, Rube-Goldberg devices, magnetically levitated vehicles and more, and also competed in events testing their knowledge and experimental skills in a variety of sciences. We earned medals for 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place in 16 of the 23 events and finished first overall for our performance in all events combined.   The story is coming soon.  Click here for a photo gallery.
