Congratulations to Deep Creek Middle School and teachers, Paula Labbe and Jonathan Neel, for being named the Virginia state winner in the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Contest, a program that encourages students to solve real-world issues in their community using classroom skills in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM).
In November, Deep Creek Middle School was named one of the nation’s 255 state finalists, one of five state finalists in Virginia, and the only middle school in the state. Now named the state winner, Deep Creek Middle School will receive $25K in technology and a technology kit to produce a presentation video. From the presentation videos, Samsung will announce ten national finalists (March 1-25, 2018) to receive $50K in school technology and a trip to the Pitch Event. In early April, ten national finalists will present their prototype to a panel of judges. Samsung will announce three national winners who will each receive a $150K technology grant for their school, plus a Community Choice winner who will receive an additional $15K in technology for their school.
Paula Labbe and Jonathan Neel’s 8th grade students were chosen based on their proposal to use STEAM skills to address the health of oysters in the Chesapeake Bay. To tackle this project, students will build a salinity monitor and develop interventions to slow or stop the spread of parasite- infected oysters in the Chesapeake Bay.
Congratulations Mrs. Kim Dorsey, DCMS Teacher of the Year, and Mrs. Shannon Michealson, DCMS Reading Teacher of the Year!
