Dunwoody Elementary School

Science Olympiad 2013 Results 

Winning two golds and a bronze, Dunwoody Elementary School's science team finished strong during the 2013 DeKalb County Elementary Science Olympiad on April 27. Fourteen DES students in grades 3-5 participated in the yearly event, sponsored by Fernbank Science Center, in which teams from 27 schools gathered at Druid Hills Middle School. DES team members competed in 20 of the 28 categories ranging from on-site "builds" to model races and demonstrations of knowledge. A solid one third of our students came home with medals. The team consisted of Priya Abiram, Adyasha Aruk, Reuben Covey, Filippo Di Benedetto, Max Erfani, Ian Hopkins, Spencer Hopkins, Will Frame, Austin Kirkley, Matthew Kotzbaur, Charlie Martinez, Nic Poole, Erik Wang and Cameron Weeks. The team was led by guest coach Karen Baker and teacher sponsor Jeannette Beck and parent coordinator Dee Dee Martinez (back row left to right) .
Ian and Spencer Hopkins dazzled in their maiden Olympiad with a first place win in Circuit Wizardry. Adyasha Aruk topped her silver performance last year with a gold in Starry, Starry Night. Filippo Di Benedetto and Erik Wang teamed up to place third in Rock Hound. Congratulations to all members of the DES team and their families as they look forward to future events.
