CONGRATULATIONS to the Greenbrier East InvenTeam! The team has been selected as one of six finalists for the WV Samsung Solve for Tomorrow national competition and one of 300 teams nationwide. The annual Solve for Tomorrow competition challenges public school students in grades 6-12 to explore the role science, technology, engineering, and math (the core STEM subjects) can play in addressing some of the biggest issues in their local communities. The competition is designed to engage students in active, hands-on learning that can be applied to real-world problems – making STEM more tangible and showcasing its value beyond the classroom. The GEHS Inventeam submitted a proposal to continue work on their cave tracking system.
Representing the cream of more than one thousand competition entrants, each State Finalist has won a package of $2,500 in technology and school supplies. In addition, these Finalists advance to additional stages of the competition, culminating in three schools being selected in May as National Winners and receiving $100,000 prize packages.
