Lincolnshire junior high schoolers compete in national science contest

Lincolnshire students Saturday made the top 16 teams competing in a prestigious science contest in Washington, D.C.

James Wei, Conrad Oberhaus, David Liang and Haoyang Yu represented Daniel Wright Junior High in the U.S. Department of Energy's National Science Bowl. They did not advance to the championship round, but will race electric model cars the students engineered and built Sunday.

Nearly 50 teams from schools across the country were tested on multiple science disciplines during the bowl.

Two finalists will square off in the academic competition on Monday.
