February 16, 2012

Kennedy and Wilson middle schools picked up more hardware for their science prowess last weekend at the 2012 Central New Mexico Science Olympiad. Finishing in fourth and fifth places, respectively, they rank among the top 25 teams in New Mexico heading into the State Science Olympiad Feb. 25 at New Mexico Tech. 

The top six teams in last weekend’s competition qualified for the state contest. Kennedy and Wilson were the only public schools among those. Kennedy finished the event with 19 medals. 

Kennedy performed best in engineering-related events, according to its sponsor and science teacher Steve McGuinness. Wilson made a strong showing in laboratory-focused events. 

In the high school division, Cibola, Del Norte, La Cueva and Sandia high schools qualified for the state finals.

The event is sponsored by the University of New Mexico STEM Education Outreach Programs.
