Science student presents before Idaho Academy of Sciences
North Idaho College student Shane Moore from Weippe, Idaho, recently presented the results of a chemistry research project at the Idaho Academy of Science annual conference in Nampa, Idaho.
The Idaho Academy of Science is an organization of faculty and students that promote and support math and science education. Each year at the group's annual meeting, students are invited to present on various projects to share the results with attendees. The organization judges the presentations and Moore received a first place award from the academy in the undergraduate division of the geoscience/physics/engineering category.
“Shane presented at the meeting and did an outstanding job,” said NIC Chemistry Instructor Dale Marcy, who headed up the research project. “This is the first time that an NIC student has presented at the annual meeting, since we don't formally do research at NIC.”
The research project entailed a study of the relationship between the Rathdrum-Spokane Valley Aquifer and local surface water, namely Lake Coeur d'Alene.
Moore plans to graduate from NIC in May. He currently works at a local winery performing chemical analyses on wine.
