5th Graders In National Finals

Some young minds are developing a vision for the future of treating lung cancer.

Four, fifth-graders from elementary schools in Minot have won a regional award called ExploraVision.
It’s a challenge to young people to think about problem-solving 20 years in the future.

Today, the Edison students were given their award – and an invitation to compete against five other teams for the national title in their age group.
Their project is called “A.P.N.” – that stands for something too hard for me to pronounce so I’ll let one of the winning students take over…

(Akina Pallera, North Plains 5th Grader) “Our project is APN, Adenocarcinoma Prevention With Nanobots.”
(Julie Jaeger, Instructor) “Basically eradicating any cells that might be cancerous before they even had a chance to duplicate. “
(Akina Pallera, North Plains 5th Grader) “I’m really excited because there are so many other people that we went against.”

Each member of the national award-winning team receives a ten thousand dollar savings bond.
Runners-up get a five thousand dollar bond.
The winners will be notified in mid-to-late April.
