Congratulations to seventh grader Emily Webb for taking first place in the You Be The Chemist Challenge sponsored by the Math Science innovation Center on Saturday, March 21. Emily will go on to participate in the State level of the Challenge in Suffolk, Virginia in April.
King William was well represented at the Challenge. Emily was joined by eighth grader Danielle Brown and AES fifth grader Chris Flores, the only elementary school student to compete in the MSiC local challenge.
The Challenge, provided by the Chemical Education Foundation, "is a fun and interactive academic competition that engages grade 5–8 students in learning about important chemistry concepts and their real-world applications."
