Led by coach Liz Petry, the team had to work together to build the tallest, free-standing tower out of recyclable materials that could hold up to six eggs. In addition to the hands-on challenge, there was a team paper-pencil math challenge and an individual paper-pencil challenge.

Way to go Riley, Cici, Ellie, Alex, Ruby, Noura, callie, Eleanor, and Charlotte!
