Samsung's Solve for Tomorrow - Climate Change


Once again, an Essex High School program shines.  In January 2020, Samsung announced that a team from the EHS STEM Academy was selected to represent Vermont in the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Contest.   Lea Ann Smith, Director of the STEM Academy, and some of her students will give us a preview into the development of a original app to address issues associated with our changing climate.  Shortly after this presentation, the team will submit its proposal to Samsung for review.
