After months of hard work and perseverance, Chapin had great success at the Mercer County Science and Engineering Fair!
We all dream that our children will be successful in their careers, whatever that means for their individual passions. In our hearts, we know that means so little unless they are successful as citizens, as partners, as parents, as siblings, as friends. The dream we all share is that the world is full of good people. At Chapin School Princeton, we help that dream come true, one child at a time.
Chapin School Princeton seeks to instill respect, responsibility, honesty, kindness, and perseverance in its students as it fully prepares them--academically and personally-- for secondary school.
Chapin School Princeton's community is best described as a neighborhood where everyone looks after each other. It is here where bonds of friendship between children, adults, and families extend across cultures and social boundaries in creating a warm and caring environment rarely found in today's society.
In only our second year of competition at the New Jersey Junior Science Olympiad, with a team of students who had never competed before, Chapin School Princeton won second place in Aerodynamics, Chopper Challenge, Cool It For Today, Egg Drop, Mystery Powder, and Balloon Car Race, third place in Clay Boat and fourth place in Bottle Music, and Roller Coaster. And, in the overall competition, Chapin won third place! Congrats on all of the perseverance through hard work.
