Southwest Missouri Junior High School earns National Prize with a project exploring ways to reduce drought
Recently, Carthage Junior High School was selected as the Missouri winner of the 13th annual Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Contest. As a result, the school will receive a $12,000 prize package. Solve for Tomorrow is a national competition that challenges United States public school students in grades 6-12 to explore how the role of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) can play in solving some of the most significant issues in their local communities.
On Thursday, KRPS's Fred Fletcher-Fierro spoke with Renea Brownfield, a 7th grade Science Teacher at Carthage Junior High school. He first asked about her class's award-winning project.
