Annie Wright student a STEM contest winner

The News TribuneNovember 4, 2013 

Annie Wright freshman Aurora Hake is one of 10 national winners of a contest designed to encourage high school girls to explore science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) careers.

The contest, sponsored by Marvel Entertainment, the National Academy of Science and others, was held in conjunction with the Friday opening of the movie “Thor: The Dark World,” which stars Natalie Portman as astrophysicist Jane Foster.

Aurora of Lakewood interviewed Anna Goussiou, a physics professor at the University of Washington, as part of the contest.

Winners will be recognized at a screening of the movie at the historic El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, and they will also spend a week in California meeting women who work in STEM fields.
