The following students attended the district competition in 100 Mile House: Mason Yochmans, Metal vs Liquid; Dylan Alexandre, Zoetrope; Mitchell Blusson and Sebastian Gracia, Mass vs Distance; Madison Blusson and Brooklyn Laukkanen, How Much is too Much; Martin Schmidt, Solar Power Energy; Jeff Vogt and Spencer Blois, Eye Tricks; Gewn Rohls, Saline World; Garrett Shephard, Radios and Electromagnetic Fields; Emily Ratz and Abby West, Diabetes; and Nathalie Sylvain, Which Wheat Flour has the most Gluten?

Students Dylan Alexandre; Mitchell Blusson and Sebastian Gracia; Madison Blusson; Gewn Rohls; Garrett Shephard; Emily Ratz and Abby West were selected to compete in Kamloops.

“Every year Maranatha is very pleased with the quality of work the students display,” Blusson says. “They are hard working, dedicated students. Come out and visit Maranatha to see for yourself.”
