The Natick High School Lemelson MIT InvenTeam was represented by two of its members, senior Katelyn Sweeney and junior Olivia Van Amsterdam, at the 2014 White House Science Fair this week. The students demonstrated the team’s Ice Search and Recoverysystem to President Obama, Bill Nye, Dean Kamen, and other notable scientists and dignitaries. In April, the team filed a patent to protect the intellectual properties of their work with any possible income being directed towards the Natick Public Schools STEM initiatives. The students are in the process of forming a board of directors to help oversee the distribution of possible funds.
Please take a few minutes to check out the team at the
