Up and Coming TMSA Science Olympiad Team

On February 8, 2014, Triangle Math and Science Academy Science Olympiad Team competed in the Raleigh Regional Science Olympiad competition. The team competed at the tournament with a Varsity and a Junior Varsity team including 34 students ranging from 4th to 7th grade. Students competed in 23 different scientific categories against 34 different school teams across Wake County and the surrounding area. TMSA’s Science Olympiad Teams ranked in third and fourth place in their own leagues and represented their school in an outstanding manner and outperformed themselves at the competition. The students, their parents and their head coach Mr. Isa Pamuk worked tirelessly during weekdays and weekends after schools and stayed until late hours at school.

  All of these extra study times and volunteer hours paid off during the tournament and students from both the Varsity and Junior Varsity teams received 48 medals, including 10 gold medals, 4 silver medals, and 14 bronze medals.  Although each child did quite well for their individual events, they also worked together and the Junior Varsity team won 3rd place for the overall tournament, and the Varsity team placed in 4th place for the entire regional tournament.  TMSA’s students earned these awards from 23 different categories such as written tests in Anatomy, Solar System, Entomology, Disease Detectives as well as building events, such as Bottle Rockets, wheeled vehicle, homemade xylophone and guitar. With these results, TMSA’s Varsity team will move on to State Level and will compete against the best schools across North Carolina in order to advance up to the National Competition. TMSA’s Team is mostly composed of 4th thru 7th graders and they competed against middle school students and showed significant success during the competition. This accomplishment belongs to the students in the first place and their parents next. Triangle Math and Science Academy’s new goal for next year is to be in the top three schools in Raleigh region.
