On Saturday, March 12, students in the STEM English 12 class are going to compete in the Central Sound Regional Science and Engineering Fair (CSRSEF) at Bellevue College. 

CSRSEF is open to high school students in King and Snohomish Counties to present the projects they have been working on. MTHS seniors in STEM will present the cumulative projects which they have been working on  all year.

There are approximately 45 students from MTHS participating in the event.

“This isn’t the first year we have had students from Mountlake Terrace participate, but this is the first year we have had a large group of Mountlake Terrace students participate,” science teacher Penny Lefavour said.

The top teams will have a chance to go to the state science fair in Bremerton, and then potentially advance to the International science fair which will be held in Phoenix, Ariz., later this year.

“[Students] have the opportunity here to talk to a variety of possible mentors, and network,” Lefavour said. “In most science and engineering careers, being able to network is a professional skill that is really important.”

Connections are not the only opportunity presented at this event.

“There are a lot of scholarship opportunities,” Senior Andrew Borrud said. He is working on a project to integrate bluetooth into smoke detectors, which he believes will help save the lives of firefighters.

Many awards will be awarded to teams at CSRSEF. These include Grand awards, for the best team, Category awards, for the best team of each section, and Special awards, which are sponsored by other businesses and organizations.
