Middle School Students Win Honors in Foxcroft’s STEM Challenge

Congratulations to Gloria ’22, Arohi ’22, and Finley ’22, who successfully represented WES at Foxcroft’s STEM Challenge on Saturday, earning recognition in two categories:

•They placed first in the biology event, where they assessed various plastic materials for their impact on marine life.

•They placed second in two different math events, one involving coding and the other performing calculations about sea water salinity and pH.

Arohi ’22 also won a raffled $50 Amazon gift card thanks to her trivia knowledge! Foxcroft, located in Middleburg, VA, draws participants from at least 20 mid-Atlantic schools to this highly challenging and fun event. A special thank you to Katie Meyer, who drove the team to the competition.
