Middle School in Winterport Receives Big Award at Surprise Assembly 

Students at the Wagner Middle School in Winterport got a big surprise Wednesday for digging into science.As part of a contest sponsored by S.W. Cole Engineering, they produced a 60 second video answering a simple question – how science and technology effects their daily lives.47 schools from Maine and New Hampshire participated.Mrs. Cardello’s class won the contest and a one-thousand dollar grant for the Challenger Learning Center.”If they get interested now at the middle school level, they’ll be more likely to enroll in high school, and in college and become the engineers and scientists we’re gonna need,” said David Dunnen with S.W. Cole Engineering.Five other schools in Maine and New Hampshire also received awards.Officials with S.W. Cole will travel to those schools and surprise them with similar ceremonies all week.
