Meet Our 2003 science fair winners


PitWatch Issue Volume 8, Number 1

The Committee awarded $50 savings bonds to four grade-school students and a $250 bond to one high school student who competed in the 2003 Montana Tech Science and Engineering Fair. Each of their Fair projects explored important topics related to the Berkeley Pit and mine waste cleanup technologies. The Committee will offer awards again at the 2004 Science Fair, and students are encouraged to choose projects related to the Pit and mine waste cleanup for that competition.
