Team's vision wins prize
Three Wando High School seniors' class research project has won the top prize in the national ExploraVision competition sponsored by Toshiba and the National Science Teachers Association.
Jonathan Heywood, Patrick Rivers and Danny Mullin each will get a $10,000 savings bond and a free trip to Washington, D.C., for the national ceremony.
he Wando group proposed a future treatment for kidney failure using nanotechnology, which involves the manipulation of atoms and molecules. The team identified scientific breakthroughs needed for the proposed treatment to work and potential positive and negative consequences from the use of their new technology.
