Vandermyde’s STEM Class Named State Finalist
Ms. Vandermyde, Central STEM teacher, has been informed that her class’ project has been named among the nation’s 250 state finalists in the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Contest – a nationwide competition which challenges students in grades 6-12 to apply STEM skills to find creative solutions to real-world issues impacting their local communities.
Out of thousands of schools that entered the contest, the 250 state finalist classrooms – five from each state – were chosen based on their creative and strategic proposals to solve complicated issues that affect their communities by using STEM learning. All 250 teachers selected as state finalists will receive one Samsung tablet for their classrooms and have the opportunity to advance through future phases of the contest to win additional prizes and educational opportunities.
With $2 million in technology on the line, the 250 state finalists will submit a lesson plan detailing how students will execute the proposed STEM project and how it addresses the identified community issue.
Congratulations to Ms. Vandermyde and her STEM class! Good luck as you move on in the competition!
