The Abraham and Sara Silber Middle School Division at Yeshiva of South Shore held its second annual Fish Tank competition, culminating with a fantastic showing of talent and great collaboration among students and their groups at this year’s finale.

Ten groups presented their inventions and business plans to an enthusiastic audience, and the students were skilled in discussing their creations with a rigorous panel of judges. Some groups went into depth with their invention and potential profit and evaluation of their businesses, which included research and some excellent math skills.

Overall, the Fish Tank competition showed an impressive array of skills that our 7th grade boys possess, and the rigor to compete in such an amazing competition.

Special thanks to the 7th grade science teachers, Rabbi Dovid Schulman and Mrs. Rina Korman, program creator, for leading this project. Special thanks to our panel of judges including guest judge, Mrs. Yafa Lamm, Curriculum Designer and Developer for The Center for Initiatives in Jewish Education (CIJE).
