The 28th annal “Invterprise” science competition is wrapping up this week with students dropping off their entries to be judged.
This year’s task: Solve the plastic pollution crisis.
Each year, the contest poses a question to spark the imaginations of would-be scientists, challenging them to pursue inventive solutions to pressing problems. The contest is sponsored by Bend Research Inc., as part of Lonza Pharma Biotech, with assistance from the Bend-La Pine School District and Central Oregon Community College.
Central Oregon Daily’s Hannah Sievert talked with a couple of young inventors about their ideas and has more on the competition.
