This November while we’re focused on what we’re thankful for, we want to take some time to celebrate our students’ hard work and generosity!
At the Mathnasium of McLean we are always looking for ways to make a bigger impact in our community by supporting our local schools! While we focus on the “M” in STEM, we are firm believers that activities and learning in all areas of STEM can positively impact students. We’re excited to share that Spring Hill Elementary School (SHES), sponsored by Mathnasium, won the Virginia Science Olympiad (VASO) event on November 11th, 2023!
There were 38 teams from 18 schools who participated in the Division A Science Olympiad on November 11th. SHES had two teams participating; Team Mavericks and Team Wizards. Team Mavericks won 14 medals and are the team with the highest number of wins and medals in the state and Team Wizards won 11 medals and had the third highest number of wins and medals in the state for the VASO Division A competitions. Students wore their Mathnasium T-Shirts throughout the competition and our Center Director, Lauren, was even invited to speak at one of their practices!
We are so proud of Team Mavericks’ and Team Wizards’ big wins this year and were grateful for the opportunity to support them! Congratulations to all of the student’s for their hard work and deduction to the teams’ successes!
