The Port Jefferson Middle School Science Olympiad team placed 23rd out of 140 schools in the New York State Science Olympiad Competition. The event, which was held at Greece Arcadia High School in Rochester, N.Y., consisted of the top schools from 11 regions across New York State. Coach Adam Bouchard and teachers Deborah Hagmeyer and Marianne McFadden accompanied the team.

“The students worked hard and learned scientific concepts on a high school and college level,” said Bouchard. “Everyone enjoyed being in Rochester – it was a very worthwhile experience. We hope to return next year to states and build upon our team’s successes.”

The team took third place at the Suffolk County regional competition in March to qualify for the state competition. The district has been participating in the Middle School Science Olympiad event for more than 15 years.
