A team of middle grades students from Dan McCarty School recently competed in the Space Coast Science Education Alliance Regional Science Bowl in Melbourne, Florida. After practicing for weeks under the direction of science teacher Holly Kaas, the students made the trip on a Saturday to participate. The team made it through two grueling rounds before defeat. Pictured, from left, are Coach Kaas and team members Micoy O’Meally, Meshun Atkins, Colton Gillman, Jonathan Ordonez and Edmundo Moreno. St. Lucie Public Schools’ K-12 Science Title 1 Curriculum Supervisor District Science Coordinator Steven Shotola, far right, was also on hand to support the team.
