National Science Bee

FLEX student Anika received a perfect score of 100 on the 2021 National Science Bee Online Regional Qualifying Exam (ORQE). This is an incredible achievement, as Anika was among just 1.21% of 7th grade students across the country who answered every question correctly.

She also did well in the subsequent buzzer-based regional competition for science bee and qualified for national science bee which will be held later this year.
