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.
