Randolph Community Middle School: Solve for Tomorrow State Finalists Press Release
PRESS RELEASE: Randolph Community Middle School students among the 300 State Finalists in the National Samsung Solve for Tomorrow STEM Competition
A team of four Randolph Community Middle School students from Randolph, MA have been named one of 300 State Finalists in the 14th annual Samsung Solve for Tomorrow competition, receiving a $2.5K prize package.
Samsung Solve for Tomorrow is a national competition designed to empower students in grades 6-12 to leverage the power of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) to create innovative solutions addressing critical issues in their local communities.
The competition empowers public middle and high school students to catalyze change by applying Problem-based Learning (PBL) principles, environmental stewardship, and entrepreneurship to address some of society's most pressing challenges.
Eighth graders Andy Chau, Trish Nguyen, Kayla Nguyen, and Davina Tang created a project that aims to address the mental health crisis affecting individuals in our community, particularly adolescents. Recent data indicates a sharp decline in the mental well-being of young people, attributed to social factors and challenges in their learning abilities. Concurrently, there is a rise in negative peer interactions stemming from mental health issues. The team’s STEM-based project, a technological initiative, is designed to tackle this problem by offering guidance and motivation to cultivate positive mindsets, enhance emotional well-being, and foster improved outcomes for individuals.
Congratulations to Andy, Trish, Kayla, Davina and their teacher Mrs. Cardillo! Randolph Public Schools is very proud of you!
