Northridge High’s green team ‘tubular’ at its home competition

MIDDLEBURY — Northridge High School hosted the 2013 Science Olympiad Saturday.

Some members of the 27 high school teams and 23 middle school teams spent the day testing out their knowledge of science through gravity vehicles, robot arms, boomilevers, gliders, helicopters, mouse trap cars, magnetic levitation, egg drop and home-made instruments. Others were tested on their know-how in anatomy, astronomy, forensics, heredity, metrics, food science, chemistry lab and other academic topics.

The Northridge High School Green team took second and the NHS Gold team placed 16th. The two Northridge middle school teams placed 14th and 20th.

“We are very pleased with the NMS results considering the team is very young,” said NHS Science Olympiad Assistant Coach Laura Simons.

The top seven places for the high school division were Munster, Northridge, Whiting, Portage Central, John Adams, Carmel and Riley.

The top seven middle school teams were Grandville, Stanley Clark, Wilber Wright, Mississinewa, Chesterton, Manchester and Hudson.

There has been discussion at West Goshen Elementary School to require mandatory student uniforms in the future. How do you feel about the prospect of mandatory student uniforms in a public school environment?

I think it’s an excellent idea that is way overdue
I think it’s a bad idea and would be restrictive for students and parents.
