CLARK — A team of Arthur L. Johnson High School students competed in the New Jersey Science Olympiad Regional Competition at Union County College in Cranford on Jan. 11.
A young team with eight enthusiastic freshmen was led by three seasoned seniors, Kaitlyn Perez, Alison Calo and Meghan Manuel. Teams of one and two students prepared for the competition in the weeks prior to the event by working together to research a variety of science content areas. Faculty advisors, Suzanne Nagourney, Tien-nye Vaccari and Jenette Morse directed the research.
The science events in which the students competed covered a diverse spectrum of science knowledge. They ranged from Anatomy & Physiology and a “Disease Detectives” event, to Ecology, Ornithology, and a “Write It, Do It” event in which one student was required to build a structure out of K’nex pieces by following written instructions from the other student team member.
