|The Springfield Park Elementary Knowledge Master Open team competed against 203 teams from all over the United States to place first in both the county and state, and 23rd in the nation overall.|
The Knowledge Master Open is an academic competition in which students work as a team to answer 100 questions on history, geography, literature, math, and science. The team has only 60 seconds to answer each question, and bonus points are awarded for answers generated in under 30 seconds.
The open provides an opportunity for students to work as a team and to realize and appreciate each other’s strengths.
“I am impressed with their knowledge, the high level of interest and engagement, and the ability of these students to work so closely together as a team,” said Tammy Jones, the principal at Springfield Park.
