Congrats to Bexley Science Team

A team of Bexley students has won the Gold Medal at the Christopher Columbus Awards, a national competition sponsored by the National Science Foundation that asks middle-school students to identify a problem in their community and use the scientific method to devise a potential solution.

As great as this is for them, I probably would have just flagged it for the "eye-catching" list, except that I wanted to bring attention to two things about the coverage of their victory. The first thing is that there is something somewhat special about this team of young scientists. The second is that nobody else seems to think that it is particularly special, which is even more exciting.

If you can't figure it out, I won't hit you over the head with it, but I'm even more glad now than I already was that my daughter will be attending Bexley schools.
