Kudos, Reston Student Scientists — Rita Mazumder and Megan Le of Hunters Woods Elementary and Anna Goldman and Hannah McLauchlin of Hughes Middle were named among 50 national finalists in the inaugural Bright Schools Competition, a collaborative effort of the National Sleep Foundation and the National Science Teachers Association that encourages students to explore the correlation between light and sleep’s influence on student health and performance. Their project “The Effect of Backlit Devices Before Sleep on Alertness in the Morning,” aims to find out if pre-teens and teens have similar adverse effects when they use backlit devices before sleep compared to adults.
