Middleburg Academy Hosts a STEAM Competition for Middle School Students

By Colley Bell

What an incredible weekend at Middleburg Academy as teams competed in our inaugural STEAM Competition creating Rube Goldberg projects. Special thanks to our Raytheon Engineers who served as our judges in the competition. Wonderful enthusiasm and creativity came from all of our teams competing. Thank you to all of our participants in contributing to our Rube Goldberg wall in our science hallway. Many schools were represented: Hill School, J. Michael Lunsford Middle School, River Bend Middle School, the Nysmith School and the 8th grade from Middleburg Academy. A very special thanks to Mr. Gillis, Ms. Dames, and Mr. Hennigar who engineered a superior competition along with Middleburg Academy Engineering students.
