Congratulations to Kris Daratha, NWPE member and winner of a $500 NWPE grant to supplement Waterville High School's science program. With the help of a STEM grant last year, he and his students entered a national competition for design and implementation of solar heated sidewalks. They were able to create a prototype and three solar panels.
