ATHENS, Ala. (WHNT) – Some students at Athens Middle School hope you will help them win a competition that includes a huge grant for the winning school.
Robotics students at Athens Middle School are among 15 finalists in the ‘Samsung Solve’ competition. The winner will get $110,000 in technology for their school.
The students and their teacher, Jennifer Kennedy, produced a project that shows how STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) can be used to solve an environmental problem. The class spent hours at the Athens-Limestone Recycling Center and Custom Polymers PET to learn how plastic is recycled, and how to do it more efficiently with robots.
Now that Athens Middle is a finalist, the school needs your votes to win the competition. You can vote daily at Samsung.com/solvefortomorrow.
