Potomac Student Wins Local "Extraordinary Teen" Award

Arlington Magazine named Madeline Dubelier '16 one of the 10 winners of its 2016 Extraordinary Teen Awards. The prosthetic hand with touch sensors that Dubelier created as part of the Science and Engineering Research Center (SERC) program at Potomac led to her distinction as a semifinalist in the 2016 Intel Science Talent Search. She is pictured with Gianmarco Terrones '15, who was also a semifinalist in the 2016 Intel Science Talent Search.
