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. The NWPE grant will help them improve the prototype and unleash five portable, heated sidewalks around Waterville, WA, in order to keep the community safe during harsh winters.  Mr. Daratha’s project is reusable, will continue year after year, and is a great way students will experience how STEM can better their community.
