The Kenston High School Science Olympiad Team traveled to Mentor last Saturday, February 13th, to compete at the 16th Mentor Invitational. Fifty-two teams competed from Michigan, New York, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. Kenston was short-handed and faced some very good competition, placing fourteenth overall. A key event was scored as a no-show, which was an obvious mistake made by the event supervisor.
Physics Potpourri Trial Event – Austin Borland, Evan Frank – 8th place
Dynamic Planet – Ashley Dvorak, Austin Borland – 6th place
Electric Vehicle – Ryan Sauder, Sam Kiley – 6th place
Geologic Mapping – Ashley Dvorak, Austin Borland – 3rd place
