St. Teresa’s Academy was named top 20 finalist in the Battle of the Brains Competition. Each top 20 finalist team is guaranteed to win a piece of $155,000 in grant money for the team’s school to use toward STEM education. The grand prize-winning team will receive a $50,000 grant, along with the opportunity to work alongside STEM professionals from Burns & McDonnell and Science City to transform the winning idea into a $1 million permanent exhibit at Science City. Over the past decade, students in the competition have inspired six exhibits now on display at Science City.
All the Top 20 teams are invited to the awards ceremony at Union Station on Jan. 19, 2022. Principal Barb McCormick commented to the school, “You all pulled off an amazing event and we had so much fun celebrating Mary and her amazing team of students! WOW!”
