Former Sequim students Douglass Peecher and Isabelle MacMurchie recently were selected as top 300 semifinalists in the Broadcom MASTERS national middle school science and engineering competition.
The two were selected for this honor from a pool of 2,343 entrants and more than 6,000 nominees from affiliated science fairs across the United States.
Three other Sequim students — Jace Francis, Nick Charters and Vita Olson — qualified to enter the Broadcom MASTERS by placing among the top 10 percent of the participants at the Washington State Science and Engineering Fair.
MacMurchie’s award winning project measured the strength of composite wings while Peecher investigated energy usage of winglets on RC aircraft.
