Kentwood sophomore Eric Foss was the third-place finisher in the Washington State Science and Engineering Fair April 4-5 in Bremerton.

Foss won the bronze medal for his project, titled “A Radiological Survey of Washington.” His prize includes sponsorship by the state science fair organization (WSSEF) as a student observer at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) May 11–16 in Atlanta, Ga., which will draw more than 2,500 students from around the world.

Finishing ahead of him in Bremerton, and receiving expenses-paid trips to ISEF, were gold medalist Ashiyah Cays Veterby of Sequim High with his project, “The Use of Antenna Pigments from Marine Algae for Sensitizaton of Photovoltaic Cells,” and silver medalist Emily Liu of Lewis and Clark High in Spokane (“Nitric Oxide, but not Reactive Oxygen Species, Mediates Cerebral Neurovascular Coupling”).
