"It's pretty exciting, especially since we spent so much time on the car and everything, and we had a blast doing it," said Madison Haagenson, their team captain. "So it's good to know that all of our time and effort was accepted."

Haagenson says she wanted to be a part of the Science Bowl team as an 8th grader. She says she wants to pursue engineering in the future.
