2019 Intel NWSE Middle School Awards

The Intel Northwest Science Expo, held Friday, April 12, 2019 at Portland State University, announces top winners in Oregon's state-level science research competition affiliated with the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair.

Intel NWSE includes both a middle school and high school division. The two divisions included 500 projects from 75 schools and organizations across the state. Two best of fair winners were chosen from each division. Our Middle School Best of Fair winners are:

  • Ekansh Mittal, 12, in grade 7 from Summa Meadow won Best of Fair in the middle school division with a project titled, "Approaches to Identify Novel Combinations of Natural Medicine to Treat Bacterial Infections".
  • Mirja Rebaum, 12, in grade 7 from Stoller Middle School won Best of Fair in the middle school division with a project titled, "Two Major Global Issues and One Solution to Solve Both".

In addition many special and category awards were given.
