    A series to share #smiles across our community through the achievements of our local youth, brought to you by Olsen Orthodontics.

    (Lander, WY) – Several Pathfinder High School students, who recently took home a number of awards at the 2022 West Central Regional Science Fair, competed at the State competition last week, and once again took home some prizes and recognitions.

    This year’s competition was held virtually, so students submitted/presented their projects in video form from here in Lander.


    Caleb Brown and Preston Burton’s project on aquaponics was acknowledged with a Sr. Division Special Award, from Lesair Environmental.

    Claire LeBeau and Parker Findley finished in 2nd place in the Plant Sciences Sr. Division, for their project on temperature effects on radish growth. 

    Miya Woody and Jarren Hurtado’s project on how light color affects plant growth nabbed 3rd place in the Plant Sciences Sr. Division.

    For Sean Crockett and Lilyanna Goraczkowski’s project on agricultural application of automated environmental data collection, the duo received 3rd place in the Computer Science Sr. Division, and also were awarded a mini internship in Data Science hosted by WEST and funded by WYEPSCoR.


    According to administration at the school, this is the first time Pathfinder students have won awards at both the Regional and State competitions.

    Congratulations Panthers!
