Belmont High School Students Perform Well in Women of Science Competition


Belmont High School (BHS) had two teams compete in the 12th annual Woman of Science Competition on December 13th.  The competition had 47 teams of junior and senior high school students from 26 high schools across multiple states competing in four science and engineering events. BHS juniors Emma Pierce-Hoffman; Sophia Lubarr; and Michelle Kornberg placed 10th, and Maddy Kelts; Sammy Kelts; and Hanna Messenger placed 12th in the ambitious competition, coached by BHS Science Teacher Mark Abruzzese.

All events entail knowledge in the areas of biology, chemistry, engineering, environmental science, math and physics.  The variety of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) challenges included pre-building a ball launcher; determining the mass of an object with very limited materials; breaking codes; science, science history, and laboratory trivia and activities.

The Women of Science Scholarship Competition began with the idea of creating a competition for female students hoping to encourage more women to enter science related fields.  The Competition, conceived and hosted by Bedford High School, is supported by EMD Millipore, Thermo Fisher Scientific, and the University of Massachusetts Lowell.  Top teams receive college scholarships and/or prize money and gifts.
