Mountain View Middle School (MVMS) students will compete in the state MATHCOUNTS competition. The MVMS team placed third out of the 16 teams competing.
MVMS eighth grader Daylan Bird placed fifth in the individual competition and received a $750 scholarship to Idaho State University School of Engineering as well as winning a trophy.
MVMS math teacher Ken Maroney is the team's coach.
The top three teams and top 12 individuals move on to the state competition.
Medical students in rotations at Bingham Memorial Hospital visited a classroom at Stoddard Elementary Wednesday to teach the students about germs.
The medical students, from Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences, visited Megan Leiseth's second grade classroom. They left with swabs from the drinking fountain, computers, white board markers, the chinchilla cage and Principal Ryan Wilson's mouth.
They will grow the germs in petri dishes over the next two days, returning Friday to share their results with the students.
