MIDDLE TENNESSEE STATE UNIVERSITY

Brentwood Middle School won the middle school division at the 1st Regional Science Olympiad at Middle Tennessee State University on Feb. 27.

Brentwood Middle School won the middle school division at the 1st Regional Science Olympiad at Middle Tennessee State University on Feb. 27, according to an announcement from the university.

Woodland Middle School, also in Brentwood, came in third, behind Murfreesboro’s St. Rose of Lima school.

Students from Central Magnet School of Murfreesboro won the high school division, with Franklin High School coming in second.

All will advance to the Tennessee Science Olympiad set for Saturday, April 9, on the University of Tennesee-Knoxville campus.

About 400 students competed at MTSU in such events as “Bottle Rocket,” “Crave the Wave,” “Food Science” and “Reach for the Stars” for middle school students and “Game On,” “Robot Arm,” “Electric Vehicle” and “Invasive Species” for high school students.

Science Olympiad competitions are like academic track meets, consisting of a series of 23 team events in each of the three divisions (high school, middle school and elementary), the national organization’s website, https://www.soinc.org, says. The elementary competition will be held Saturday, April 30, at John Pittard Elementary School in Murfreesboro.

A portion of the events are rotated ever year to reflect the ever-changing nature of genetics, earth science, chemistry, anatomy, physics, geology, mechanical engineering and technology.

“It was very exciting and very loud at our awards’ ceremony,” said MTSU chemistry professor Pat Patterson, the regional director.

Equally exciting for Patterson was the fact every school earned a medal.

Franklin High senior Mia Unni and ninth-grader Raphael Fortuna competed in the electric vehicle competition.

“I guess we did OK,” Fortuna said, unaware of the results and of their school’s team advancing to state at the time.

“It’s fun to do,” added Unni. “I like seeing the results of all your hard work over the weeks.”

The MTSU regional receives tremendous support from university faculty and students, who assist with the running of all 46 events. Most were held in the Science Building.
