Kromrey's eighth-grader Sanjay Suresh and sixth-grader Raghav Gopalakrishnan took first and third place, respectively, out of 20 middle school students at the Madison Area Science, Technology & Engineering Rising Stars program on May 6.
Suresh's project explored the use of 3-D printing for creating violin bridges, while Gopalakrishnan's project focused on sorters and how they work based on the weight and size of the objects being sorted.
