Windsor students flex their muscles and brains for the Olympics

Posted: Updated:

WINDSOR (WBNG) -- With Friday marking the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympic Games in South Korea, one local elementary school held its own Olympic events. 

Students at C.R. Weeks Elementary School in Windsor learned how sports and science relate to each other through a series of science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) activities.

The students learned about topics such as slope and velocity, designed bobsleds and calculated averages. 

Faculty members say there were also a few life lessons involved.

"The opening ceremonies, that was like the message to the students, working together and being collaborative," said Kristin Beriman, Principal of C.R. Weeks Elementary School. "There's team events and individual events throughout the day, and also just a love for the Olympics, giving 100 percent effort, and working and learning like an Olympian. Always doing your best and trying to grow."

Representatives from each class passed the torch and discussed the connection between STEAM and the Olympics.
