Mira Loma students ace national science bowl

Kids love science … or holograms.


Students from Sacramento’s Mira Loma High School edged out 67 other high schools from around the country during a national science bowl in Washington, D.C., on Monday, the U.S. Department of Energy announced.

The five students and their coach closed out the competition by correctly answering a question about gene-editing technology, a DOE release states.

With victory comes a comped, nine-day trip to Alaska, where students Daniel Shen, Arvind Sundararajan, Jack Gurev, Roger Yu and Claire Burch will learn about stuff while hiking the Chugach National Forest and white-water rafting the Sheridan River, among other scheduled day trips.

See kids? Brains am good.
