Samsung Solve For Tomorrow Challenge

 Congratulations to Mike Arsenault, Morgan Cuthbert, and Molly Kellogg for their work on the, "Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Challenge!"
We just learned HMS is a State Finalist in this challenge. Click on "Maine" for more information; HMS was chosen from 5 schools.
Samsung started the Solve for Tomorrow education contest, giving schools across the U.S. the opportunity to raise interest in Science Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) subjects among students, by awarding their schools with a share of over $2 million in technology.

HMS students will be studying the invasive, Green Crab issue. The Green Crabs are destroying Maine's clam beds, and weakening our salt marshes. Students will conduct interviews and propose solutions to this problem. 
At this point in the contest HMS has been granted two Galaxy tablets a laptop, camcorder, and Adobe software.

Our next challenge submission will take place sometime in February.  If we're able to advance further in the contest the process will go live for voting. Mike, Morgan, and Molly will keep us posted on this so we can all participate! If HMS is able to make it into the next round of fifteen, our school will win a twenty to thirty-eight thousand dollar technology package!
