Hudson K-8 School’s Math, Engineering and Science Achievement team won the national championship in the middle school competition Sunday in Denver, according to Hudson Principal Wendy Claflin.

The Hudson team had won the state championship this spring at U.C. Santa Barbara, where the contest focused on wind energy. Students were required to build a device to capture wind energy that could lift the most weight and pull the heaviest car in the least amount of time.

Hudson advanced to the state finals after capturing first place in a regional competition at UCLA in April.

The Cal State Long Beach MESA program sponsored the Hudson team for their June 24 to 27 trip to the national competition.

Hudson team members are Breanna Nery, Rae-Jillian Rivera, Kimberly Ventura, and Reginald Lata. Their advisor is James Mills.
