Neenah Science Math Bowl a hit

Middle school competition to be annual

St. Mary Central High School, Neenah, hosted its premier SMC Science Math Bowl for middle school teams on April 4.

This year, six teams competed: St. John, Fox Valley Christian Academy, Horace Mann and three teams from Seton Catholic Middle School. The SMC student math team members served as moderators and timers and Michelle Jungbauer of the science faculty coordinated the event.

"It was fun to watch the students work together to answer questions, Jungbauer said. "They were elated when they answered correctly. It was a great team-building experience for the participants and for our SMC math and science team members."

The seventh grade team from Horace Mann won first place, Seton Team #3 took second and Fox Valley Christian third. All participants received a Science Math Bowl shirt. The awards ceremony was accompanied by a pizza party.

"The SMC Science and Math students who participated in planning and staffing this event were surprised and pleased at the enthusiasm and excitement that these seventh graders demonstrated in this academic contest," said Jim Murphy, SMC Science Department Chair. "We look forward to hosting this event next year."
