M&A hydrogeologist coaches winning Science Olympiad team

Posted on by

M&A hydrogeologist Janis Blainer-Fleming coached two budding female scientists from Alice Vail Middle School (AVMS) as they prepared for the “Awesome Aquifer” event at the Science Olympiad (SO), a national program to promote students’ interest in science. During this event, team members demonstrate their understanding of groundwater concepts by taking tests and building a model aquifer. At the state SO competition held at the University of Arizona on March 4th, the AVMS team not only scored high in the Awesome Aquifer event, but they also won the overall state competition, qualifying them for the nationals in Bloomington, Illinois, on May 20th. Congratulations, girls… and best of luck!
