This team qualified for the World Finals at Michigan State University May 22-25th The team will be holding a variety of fund raisers over the month of April in order to finance this amazing opportunity to compete against teams for all over the United States, as well as teams from abroad, such as China and Singapore.
The team of Montana LeTourneau, Alyssa Shaw, Mary Faenza and Eliza Tarbell competed in Problem #5 – “It’s How You Look At It” The team needed to create a performance that showed how a behavior in one place may seem normal, yet in a second place seem abnormal.
