Yesterday, two teams of Newton North HS students performed well at the 16th Annual Women of Science Competition in Bedford. Of 38 teams competing, team A (Abby Lau, Eve Martin and Dominique Rinfret) placed second, each winning $500 scholarships and science books, and team B (Jane Alandydy, Mari McCarthy and Ali Roberts) won sixth place. Newton South HS also fielded two teams, winning seventh and eleventh places. All 38 teams wrestled with STEM problems celebrating women’s achievements in STEM, under the theme Reaching for the Stars – Celebrating Astronomical Discoveries of Women Astronomers. The event also included a networking lunch with female STEM professionals. Take a look at some of the challenges from this year and prior years!
