Lander students nominated for nat'l STEM event

Mar 19, 2017 - From wire reports

Five middle-schoolers from Lander have been nominated to be among the 30 finalists selected this fall for an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C.

If selected the students would participate in the national competition of Broadcom MASTERS (Math, Applied Science, Technology and Engineering Research Scholars).

The students were nominated for their projects entered this month at the Wyoming State Science Fair:

- Abby Copeland, Lander, with a project titled "Once Upon Again: Rechargeable Tin Batteries."

- Mia Copland, Lander, with a project titled "Harming Our Future One Weed at a Time."

- Dylan Huelskamp, Lander, with a project titled "Type 1 Diabetes and Exercise."

- Sierra Lloyd, Lander, with a project titled "Moovin' for Biodiversity."

- Colmcille Rottinghaus, Lander, with a project titled "But I Thought He Was on My Team! The Effect of Jersey Color on Quarterback Performance."

Erin Stoesz, Wyoming State Science Fair coordinator, said participation in the State Science Fair engaged students in real-life science experiences and gave them opportunities to interact with professionals and share their ideas with the public.

She said that UW has hosted the State Science Fair for many years and continues to be "highly supportive of the event." More than 100 judges, community and campus volunteers contributed to this year's fair. Many local and national organizations, UW departments and industry also sponsored special awards.
