Magnet students achieve at international science fair

Three students from the Rockdale Magnet School for Science and Technology recently competed in the Fourth Annual International Sustainable World Engineering, Energy, and Environment Project (ISWEEEP) Olympiad in Houston, Texas. They each were recognized for their projects.

Jalem Towler won a silver medal and $600 (plus a $7000 scholarship to a Houston college).

Zineb Bouzoubaa won a bronze medal and $400.

Sophia Tuttle won honorable mention (fourth place) and $200.

I-SWEEEP, a science fair open to high school students, brought 470 projects from 70 countries and 43 U.S. states to Houston. Houston will again be home to the fourth I-SWEEEP in May 4-9, 2011 at George R. Brown Convention Center. The contest aims to create an educational platform for young researchers to take on today’s challenges in energy, engineering, and environment with projects presented at the fair. I-SWEEEP is organized by the Cosmos Foundation. I-SWEEEP 2010 More information about this international competition can be found online at
