-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

In garages and in nature, two Los Alamos High School students recently spent months testing their scientific knowledge. What they created only few have seen or even imagined.Now, high school junior Caroline Wurden and freshman Alexander Kendrick are sharing their discoveries not only with the country, but with the world.Both young scientists will participate in the International Science and Engineering Fair, to be held May 11-16 in Atlanta. The upcoming science fair is the largest international, pre-college science competition, annually providing a forum for more than 1,500 high school students from more than 40 countries to showcase their independent research. Students in ninth through 12th grade participate in the international event.To get to this point, Wurden and Kendrick participated in local, regional and state competitions. Dawn Brown, coordinator of the Los Alamos County Science Fair, explained Wurden and Kendrick first needed to place in the local science competition, held Jan. 26 at Los Alamos High School, before moving on to the regional science fair held March 8 at the New Mexico Highlands University in Las Vegas, N.M. During the regional competition, she said, students who placed first through third could advance to the state competition, which was held April 4-5 at New Mexico Tech.
