MVCDS Named State Finalist in Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Contest
Maumee Valley Country Day School announced today that it has become an Ohio state finalist in the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow contest, a nationwide competition to increase interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) by challenging teachers and students to take topics out of traditional classroom settings and into local communities. Maumee Valley will receive two Samsung Galaxy® Tabs and the opportunity to win additional prizes.
Maumee Valley Country Day School has moved onto this round of the competition for their interest in using STEM to address the health of Swan Creek and develop a Best management Practice Plan for school fertilizing. Maumee Valley is one of five schools in Ohio to become a state finalist in the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow contest. During the next phase of the competition, Chris Ann Slye of Perrysbury, OH, a Middle School Science teacher at MVCDS, will create a lesson plan to address the issue in an educational setting. In December, 51 state winners will be announced.
