After defeating the team from Baxter Academy earlier this fall, Waynflete’s MEST-Up team of Julianna Harwood (’15) and Stephen Epstein (’15) took on Westbrook High School in the Quarterfinal round and emerged victorious.
MEST-Up is a television game show that tests high school students in the areas of math, engineering, science, and technology. The show airs on WPXT (The CW, or Channel 12 locally). Schools from around the area send teams of two students to compete head to head in trivia and engineering challenges. At stake, according to the show’s host, “the MEST-Up trophy, brand new iPads, and eternal glory.”
Last year’s team from Waynflete (Al Ghorashi ’15 and Sophie Benson ’14) were the overall champions, and Stephen and Julianna are hoping to continue the winning streak! Stay tuned for news of the airing of the next contest.
