Bravo Teams takes second in LADWP 29th Annual Science Bowl

Bravo’s NErDy pursuits continue!

On Saturday, Feb. 20, 2021, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) held its 29th Annual Science Bowl Regional Competition. For the third year in a row, the last two teams standing were Bravo Medical Magnet High School and North Hollywood Highly Gifted Magnet. Bravo took up the challenge against last year’s winning team, fought hard, and finished second place overall. Though the competition happened over Zoom, Kelli Van Brunt, Josiah Rattay, Isaac Castillo, Issak Loreto, and Aarya Riasati exemplified great teamwork! Each won Amazon gift cards and Bravo’s NErDy program received $2500. Each team member also received a medallion and Bravo was awarded a trophy to commemorate the win! The Science Bowl winning tradition continues under the coaching of Mr. Michael Morgan, an award-winning teacher himself, and Mrs. Maria Morgan (B team coach). Even in a pandemic, NErDy finds a way!

Congratulations to Bravo's Science Bowl Members and Coaches!

Bravo Student Researcher helps USC Viterbi chemical engineers impact Global Warming

Shaama Sharada calls carbon dioxide — the worst offender of global warming — a very stable, “very happy molecule.”

She aims to change that.  Recently published in the Journal of Physical Chemistry A, Sharada and a team of researchers at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering seek to break CO2 apart and convert the greenhouse gas into useful materials like fuels or consumer products ranging from pharmaceuticals to polymers.


The research team from the Mork Family Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science was led by third year Ph.D. student Kareesa Kron, supervised by Sharada, a WISE Gabilan Assistant Professor. The work was co-authored by Samantha J. Gomez from Francisco Bravo Medical Magnet High School, who has been part of the USC Young Researchers Program, allowing high school students from underrepresented areas to take part in STEM research.
