Science Fair winner from West Des Moines

A West Des Moines Valley High School student won $11,000 at the first annual Iowa State Science and Technology Fair, held at Iowa State on March 21-22.

Stephanie Staub, a senior at Valley and Central Academy, won a $10,000 tuition grant for her project. She designed and built a basic component used in computers and then modified the component so it could randomly select two numbers. Just as if it were rolling two dice, Staub's computing machine could randomly select two numbers from one to six.

Staub will compete at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Louisville, Ky., May 9-16.
