Upper schoolers compete in MIT Science Olympiad Invitational Tournament

On January 12, fifteen Waynflete students competed in 23 different science and engineering events at the MIT Science Olympiad Invitational Tournament in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Notable finishes include a 12th place finish (against 76 teams from across the country, representing some of the top Science Olympiad schools) in an event called “Wright Stuff” in which Abby Aleshire ’20 and Clara Sandberg ’20 built a rubber band-powered airplane that flew for over one minute.

Other top events were Astronomy, by team captains Phoebe Hart ’19 and Ingrid Ansel-Mullen ’19, and Forensics, by team newcomer sophomore Aidan Keiffer and his partner Abby Aleshire.
