Marshalltown students showcased at ITEC Conference

Two Marshalltown students were among an elite group from across Iowa showcasing their projects at the Iowa Technology & Education Connection (ITEC) Conference Oct. 15 in Des Moines.

Andrea Lothe, a freshman at Marshalltown High School, and Sean Nyuon, a fifth grader at Lenihan Intermediate, were named “Judge’s Choice” and earned purple ribbons at the Central Iowa Student Technology Fair held at Iowa State University last spring. At the time Lothe was a student at Miller Middle School and Nyuon at Rogers Elementary.

Lothe’s project, “Waves of Song”, is an original music composition. Nyuon’s project, “Sudan – Land of the Blacks”, is a Scratch animation presentation on the history and culture of Sudan.
