Harold Momberg Math and Science Team

December 15, 2010
By Taylor Friedli of Centralia High School Activities



Who: Bobby Houston, Michael Mahieu, Donna Jennings, Aaron Seider, Chelsea Griffin, Kiara Moore
What: Harold Momberg Math and Science Contest
When: 11/4/10
Where: CMU campus

    This year CHS’s science and math team won first and second place at the CMU Harold Momberg Math and Science Contest, but how did they do it?

    The students competed against 12-14 schools of all sizes. They answered Jeopardy-style questions over biology, chemistry, physics, and math. They also had to show their knowledge through one performance event.  The harder questions were worth 80 points, and the easier questions were worth 20 points. Unlike sports, there are no preparations before this big event each year. Students take their knowledge from Mrs. Schmidt’s classes and other previous science and math classes and apply them to the problems. Our science and math teams like the competition because it tests their gained knowledge from the core classes. The competing students are focused and driven. CHS has placed every year; however, winning first and second is new. Mrs. Schmidt feels there is no room for improvement because they did a great job.
    The next big competition is TEAMS. TEAMS challenges students to work together. In this type of competition, students will have to apply their math and science knowledge in creative ways to solve real, everyday engineering challenges. This competition is held at Mizzou on Monday, March 14, 2011.
