Imagine This 2015!

Over the weekend the CHS MST Magnet program traveled to Pullman, WA., to participate in the annual Imagine Tomorrow competition hosted by Washington State University (WSU).  According to the host, “Imagine Tomorrow challenges 9th through 12th graders to seek new ways to support the transition to alternative energy sources. Students research complex topics related to renewable energy, then innovate technologies, designs, or plans to mobilize behavior. They forge connections in their communities and create positive change. In this energy competition, as in life, solutions are limited only by imagination. ”

Our students performed very well, demonstrating effective communication and depth of knowledge on their topics as they discussed their project work with industry judges and experts in their fields.  Standing out in this year’s competition was a sophomore group of boys who earned the distinction of “Most Inspirational” project, awarded for the spirit they demonstrated in overcoming challenges they encountered in the course of their research as they converted a lawnmower to run on ethanol and biofuel (A Mower Sustainable Future).  For this honor, the team composed of sophomores Jeff Fadlovich, Adam Jensen, Thomas Kuzis, and Anish Prasad took home $100 dollars each, not to mention earning $500 dollars for the program that will be put back into future project study. Well done, Magnetos!
