In just one month, three Maine students will head to Los Angeles, California for the Intel International Science & Engineering Fair (ISEF). They will join more than 1,500 high school students from 75 countries who received top honors at their local science & engineering fairs.
Three other students will represent Maine at national competitions this June.
Kaitlyn Dunham of Old Town High School and Elyse Daub of Bangor High School will go to Oswego, New York to compete in the GENIUS Olympiad. Kaitlyn studied whether mud worms that infect Eastern Oysters thrive in colder or warmer water. Elyse studied fungal disease of Eastern White Pine to determine that these infections are caused by more than 100 species of fungus.
We’re proud that they’re representing our state.
