Stratford Landing Team Wins First in 'Weird Science'
The following information was submitted to Patch by Terri Bell, coach of the Odyssey of the Mind Stratford Landing Elementary School team.
A team of seven fifth-graders from Stratford Landing Elementary School recently competed at the Odyssey of the World Finals at Iowa State University. The team came in first place for their solution to the NASA-sponsored "Weird Science" problem and came in third place overall.
The team, coached by Terri Bell, included team members Mary Bell, Lukas Brokamp, Nick Greve, Lindsay Johnson, Jenna Mulvihill, Lily Penn and Rhys Shallbetter. More than 800 teams from 15 countries participated in this international competition.
The team would like to thank the Stratford Landing Elementary School community for their support and the many people whose generous donations made this possible. Special thanks go to the sponsors who donated $500 or more: the Mount Vernon Kiwanis Club, WOW Cafe and Wingery and the Stratford Landing PTA.
