Fifteen students in grades 6-8 at Robert M. Finley Middle School in Glen Cove competed in last month’s Nassau County Science Olympiad, held at Port Washington’s Weber Middle School. The Finley students competed in 11 separate events ranging from science crime busters to the weight-bearing Boomilever. The team of Ryan Telese and Joseph Yee won the bronze medal in the wheeled vehicle event, and Amanda Ieraci and Monika Jagustyn combined to place sixth in the Boomilever competition.
Students worked for two months after school in preparation for this Olympic–style marathon day of science that welcomed close to 50 teams from throughout Nassau. Finley Middle School Science Olympiad adviser and science teacher Jeff Eisele would like to congratulate all of the school’s participants on a job well done.
