Several Robert Martin Elementary fifth grade students competed in the Nationwide Fall America Answers Contest on Friday, November 6th. The contest is a self-scoring, computer contest of 100 multiple-choice questions to be answered by the group. Areas covered included math, geography, government, sports, spelling, science, literature, English, history, general information and just plain fun trivia. Several students selected the team’s answers on the computer, while the others read through the questions and answers as quickly as possible. Each question offered two chances to answer correctly. Points were awarded based on how fast the question was answered by the group, as well as how accurate. No adult assistance was given! The eleven fifth grade students scored a total of 993 points with 87% accuracy. They earned 3rd place in Andover and 14th place in the Nationwide competition again 48 other 5th grade teams. The 2020 Thinking Cap Quiz Bowl team members included: Olivier C., Varen W., Blake R., Nate S., Daniel S., Carson G., Hudson S., Josh W., Miles T., Deacon A., and Deuce W.
Congratulations to the team for all their hard work!!!
