Beebe Junior High School Team Named a National Finalist in STEAM Competition
Beebe Junior High School has been named one of 10 national finalists in the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Contest.
The competition encourages teachers and students to solve real-world issues by using classroom skills in science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM).
The Beebe team designed and built a robotic car seat equipped with motion sensors and temperature gauges to set off an alarm if a child is left unattended in a hot car. This earned them a spot as one of 10 national finalists in the competition.
The school will receive $50,000 of Samsung technology and the students will present their design in New York City on March 14. Three grand prize winners will take home $150,000 in technology.
Each school’s project video submissions is online for social media voting now through Friday, March 17. Anyone can vote by visiting the website and voting for the hashtag #SamsungSolveBJHS. The school with the most votes will win the Community Choice Award.
