Cyber Techies named State Finalists in Samsung’s Solve for Tomorrow national STEM competition.
The student organization was among the top 300 finalists of over 1,000 submissions across the United States.
A $2,500 award was earned by the team to be used for classroom technology and supplies and has them moving into phase 2 of the competition.
A state win would yield winnings of $12,000 for the newly inaugurated organization.
The CTs considered problems worldwide and focused on an issue that inspired them to solve a pressing need for parents; they are developing an intelligent sensor to be used in vehicles and child carriers to alert parents of the safety risk.
The sensor is to be placed under the fabric of car seats to detect a child’s body heat.
