On Saturday, February 24th, five students from Amity Middle School Bethany’s Science Club (Piyush Bahel, Ryan Schatz, Anchal Bahel, Edwin Sweeney, and Henry Atwood) participated in the regional Connecticut Science Bowl.
The Science Bowl, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy, is a highly competitive science education and academic event among teams of high school and middle school students who compete in a fast-paced verbal forum to solve technical problems and answer questions in all branches of science and math. Of the 32 teams this year, Amity Middle School Bethany seeded #20 and won their first elimination round against the #12 seed…a Science Bowl upset!
Jacob Feuerstein is a junior at Amity High School and did a terrific job coaching the team. They all had a great time and look forward to returning again next year.
