This was the group’s first time competing as a team. The students have been practicing once a week during Middle School club time and recently spent time out of school preparing at home together. Five members composed the final competing team.

"Most questions asked directly related to our science curriculum over the course of the Middle School, which was gratifying to know, " Mrs. Barnett said. "It was extremely competitive and exciting, and we are very proud of their efforts and accomplishments."

The Wardlaw+Hartridge School is a private, nonsectarian, coeducational day school located in Edison serving students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade.
