Students participate in the “Science of Sports”


Students from the Leominster Boys & Girls Club competed against 18 other teams at the Third Annual “Science of Sports” Science Fair held at Gillette Stadium.

The students presented their projects to executive judges Patriots Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft, Raytheon Chairman and CEO Bill Swanson, and Patriots safety Patrick Chung.

The Science of Sports is a youth outreach and mentoring program that uses sports as a context to teach the principles of math and science, with the help of Raytheon employees who serve as mentors to the student groups throughout the months leading up to the science fair.

Leominster team members of “Leominster Wrestlers” included: Chris Agosto, Trever Leger, Brady Martin, Michael Nunez, Peter Pixoto, and Michael Viola. Leominster Raytheon mentor was Matt Ciampaglia.
