Another success today for students that are looking to algae for it’s ability to provide sustainable fuels, fertilizers, and other products comes from Rocky Run Middle School in Chantilly, Virginia.
Three seventh graders from that school have just won the national championship in the U.S. Army’s 11th annual eCybermission competition. Divya Mereddy, Rachana Subbanna and Sneha Thandra, operating under the name Team STEM Ninjas, successfully cultivated an algae crop and processed algal oil into fuel.
