CHESTERFIELD, NJ - The Chesterfield Science team, called the Chesterfield Olympiad, recently won big and even brought home some gold. A WBNC producer was at Chesterfield Elementary recently to interview some students about their recent accomplishments.
We spoke with 6th grade Rajat Doshi and 5th grader Samyukta Jaganathan about their involvement in the competition. Rajat built a catapult, and an egg contest, where you had to design something around the egg to protect it.
Samyukta was in a calculator contest, to answer problems using a calculator the fastest. She was also in 'Food for Thought' where she learned about the different food groups and how to read a food label.
We also sat down with Michael Kimmel, a teacher and a leader of the science team at Chesterfield. He told us the team got 1st place in 3 events, 2nd place in 1 event, 4th place in 1 event, and 6th place in a few events.
Congratulations to to the Chesterfield Science Olympiad and best of luck in future competitions!
