A pair of instructors connected to College of Western Idaho’s (CWI) Dual Credit program recently helped bring a regional education competition to Nampa High School. The Ten80 U.S. Army STEM competition—which showcases knowledge in physics, chemistry, and math—allows students a chance to compete designing and racing RC cars. Chris Anderson, who teaches CWI Dual Credit courses in chemistry at Nampa High School, facilitated the entire event. Anderson also asked Dual Credit mentor and CWI Faculty, Jim Kusterer, to serve as a judge for the competition. A team of students from Nampa High School won the event and received a trophy along with $2,000 that will assist them in their attendance at the national finals held next month in Houston, Texas.
