School science team wins awards


Lake Roosevelt High School's Imagine Tomorrow team of Alan Nordine (sophomore) and Olivia Battise (senior) placed second in the Biofuels Behavior category, a four-state science competition Saturday in Pullman.

Each team member was awarded $200 and the school will receive a $1,000 award.

For nine years, Washington State University has hosted the Imagine Tomorrow Competition in Pullman, and Lake Roosevelt High School received a special recognition and a desk clock for being one of three schools in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana that has competed in each of the nine competitions. The award for all the time spent also went to schools from Camas and Ballard.

This year, Imagine Tomorrow had 32 schools competing, mostly Western Washington schools, with over 130 projects in four separate challenges. 

LRHS's project was titled "Cellulose to Jet Fuel: Enhancing Students' Knowledge and Experience." It had the LR team working with the University of Idaho's McCall Outdoor Science School to pilot a curriculum and provide enhancements to the lessons.

Ralph Rise, Victor Camarena, and Karrie Utz served as team advisors.
