At the recent REMS (Rendezvous, Engineering, Mathematics and Science) Competition, fifth graders from Bird Rock Elementary School showed off their knowledge.

The competition is the result of the brainstorming and coordination of Rendezvous Science Center CEO Ben Foroozan and La Jolla High School Science Team Head Coach and Physics teacher Martin Teachworth.

This was the second year that Bird Rock Elementary participated in the competition under the guidance of BRE science teacher Ryan Weiss.

The purpose is to encourage interest, provide an outlet for interested students in a competitive but low stress environment and help review for the Science and Mathematics portions of the California Content Standards tests.

Competitors may range from third to fifth grade, but the program may be expanded.

Organizers are seeking support for the program in the form of money or or prize donations
