Edison academy students take part in Science Olympiad

Amey Venkatanaraya, left, and Kevin Tang from the Middlesex County Academy for Science, Mathematics and Engineering Technologies in Edison prepare their entry for an event called Mousetrap Vehicle during the New Jersey Science Olympiad. Teams build a vehicle using one or two mousetraps as its sole means of propulsion that can push a plastic cup forward, reverse direction, and come to a stop behind the starting point.

Students from 27 middle schools and 27 high schools in New Jersey participated in the 26th Annual State Finals of the New Jersey Science Olympiad at Middlesex County College in Edison on March 15.

The competition is designed to encourage students’ interest in science and technology. They took tests, fired bottle rockets, piloted helicopters and solar vehicles, and raced self-propelled cars.
