We are thrilled to share that under the guidance and direction of Emma Osoria, Science teacher and Department Chair, McNair Academic HS has been selected as a state finalist for the 2023-2024 Samsung Solve for Tomorrow STEM competition!
Congratulations to the team comprising of McNair students Fay Davis and Eza Iqbal! They have won $2,500 in Samsung technology for their classroom and will progress to the next phase of the contest!
The annual Samsung Solve for Tomorrow competition challenges public school students in grades 6-12 to explore the role science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) subjects play in addressing issues of vital concern in their local communities. Participating students engage 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 winning schools were selected from a pool of 300 State Finalists who submitted detailed lesson plans outlining how their students propose using STEM to address an important community issue.
