Belleville High School announced that it has become one of only five state finalists 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.
Dr. Alfano, the Belleville High School educator who had her Advanced Placement Environmental Science students participate in the competition, said, “I feel honored that Samsung chose us to be a finalist in the Contest. I am so very proud of the State Finalist team. They worked extraordinarily hard on the project.”
Belleville High School has moved onto this round of the competition for their interest in using S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) to create innovative ways to reduce local school Carbon Dioxide emissions through unique biological, chemical, and mechanical means. Belleville High School is one of only five schools in New Jersey to become a state finalist in the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow contest.
This is Belleville High School’s second consecutive time making it to the state finals in the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow contest.
