(Washington, D.C.) Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers congratulated Pullman High School students Monday who visited Washington, D.C. to put their science skills to the test.

The Pullman High School Science Bowl Team is one of just 67 teams invited to the nation’s capital for a contest featuring questions on topics like biology, chemistry and physics. The team did well in the round-robin competition.

The team consists of Randy Zun, Shashank Dwivedi, Suman Jandhyala, Zingyu Zhang and Prastuti Singh, and their coach Barbara Harding.

“The accomplishments of the Pullman high school team bring attention to the great need we have in our country to continue to encourage high school students to pursue careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics,” McMorris Rodgers said. “In order for our country to remain competitive, we need more young, bright students like these who will grow up to be our future doctors, scientists and engineers. I congratulate these students on their hard work and am certain they will achieve great success in the future.”

In addition to visiting the team during a reception, McMorris Rodgers formally recognized the team’s efforts in the Congressional Record.
