Hudson K-8 School's Math, Engineering and Science Achievement team won the national championship in the middle school competition this summer in Denver.
The Hudson team had won the state championship last spring at U.C. Santa Barbara, where the contest focused on wind energy. Students were required to build a device to capture wind energy that could lift the most weight and pull the heaviest car in the least amount of time.
The Cal State Long Beach MESA program sponsored the Hudson team for their summer trip to the national competition, which again focused on wind energy.
Hudson team members were Breanna Nery, Rae-Jillian Rivera, Kimberly Ventura, and Reginald Lata. Their advisor was James Mills.
