Mind A-Mazes

Please take a moment to congratulate these Nikiski 7th and 8th graders (if you know them) for their accomplishments at this year’s district “Mind A-Mazes” meet this past Saturday at Soldotna Middle.  The teams spent several weeks designing, building, testing, and modifying their devices for this year’s challenge.  With almost 50 teams from around the district registered to participate, the 7th grade team (‘Krazy Cangaroos’ – Thomas Halliday, Gabriel Smith, John Bright) won the Judges Choice Award for their creative device design, and the 8th grade team (‘This Side Up’ – Jamie Yerkes, Melanie Sexton, Aaron McCollum, Sarah Nash) won both the overall Spontaneous Problem Challenge and 1st place overall for the intermediate 7-12 division!
