White Pine Student Wins National Science Competition: Kai Hatten (pictured), now a 6th grade student at White Pine Elementary School, was named Grand Champion of the 2016 National I Cubed Challenge science competition. His invention, the Fire Exterminator, is a device that puts out fires that escape outdoor fire pits. The device was inspired by the numerous forest fires in the Western United States the previous summer.
After winning first place at last year's state Invent Idaho competition, Kai represented Idaho at the first National Invention Convention in Washington, D.C. Young inventors in grades 1-12 from across the nation were invited to submit their creative innovations online in the fourth annual I Cubed Challenge competition. Judges from three states spent countless hours assessing the entries in the 2016 National I Cubed Challenge with the theme "Environmental" inventions. The judges were inspired by the quality and creativity of the young inventors' innovations. One judge stated, "Our world is in good hands with creative kids like these young inventors as our future leaders."
In June, Christopher represented Timberline and the State of Idaho at the Congress of Future Medical Leaders in Boston, MA., where he was surrounded by many felllow high school students who share his passion, abilities and potential. He watched live surgery and many delegates had a chance to question the surgeon in real time.
The National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists was chartered as a nonpartisan, taxpaying institution to help address the shortage of primary care doctors and specialists by working to identify, encourage and mentor students who wish to devote their lives to the service of humanity as physicians, medical scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians.
