Extreme geek about 50 miles due South

Maybe I should get some bubble detectors and set up an array - see if I can pick up their neutron radiation.
From their website: Northwest Nuclear Consortium

Home
​​Welcome to the home of the Northwest Nuclear Consortium. We are an Extreme Science Club in Federal Way, Washington, offering a DOE curriculum on a research grade ion collider (Nuclear Fusion Reactor), to high school students interested in exploring careers in STEM related fields of study, including nuclear engineering, biochemistry, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and computer science.

We won the Gold (1st Place) at WSU Imagine Tomorrow in 2012. We also won the Gold (1st place) at the Washington State Science Fair, and the Silver (2nd place) world wide at ISEF in 2013. In 2014 we won 2 silver (2nd place) at the Central Sound Regional Science Fair at Bellevue College and the Gold (1st place) twice in catagory at the Washington State Science & Engineering Fair at Bremerton. In 2015, we won 14 - 1st place trophies at the Washington State Science and Engineering Fair, over $250,000 in scholarships at two different colleges and 3 of the 5 available trips to ISEF, where we won 4th place in the world against 72 countries. Watch our video to taste the experience.

We are currently researching elastic collisions in single stream plasma physics and boron/flux calculations in nuclear bio-chemistry.

Very cool website and these kids are doing some Damned Great Science including a Farnsworth Fusion Reactor - here is the video:

Man’s thermonuclear fusion reactor draws crowds to Federal Way | What Would it Take?
Last month, I walked into a modest home in a Federal Way neighborhood next to Decatur High School and was amazed by what was happening inside.

At a neighborhood meeting, I had heard that there was a thermonuclear fusion reactor in Federal Way. So, I did an Internet search and found the Northwest Nuclear Consortium website (http://lobby.nwnc.us.com/) . I promptly contacted the organizer Carl Greninger for a tour. He gave me his home address and asked me to come at 6:30 p.m. on a Friday.

When my son and I showed up at his house, he invited us into his garage. With modest theatrics, he pulled open his bookshelf to reveal a secret lab behind it. The first room contained the nuclear reactor.
