Cape Tech Advances in National STEAM Contest

Back Row: Hansen Kelly

By Press Release

CREST HAVEN – Cape Tech was named one of the nation’s 255 state finalists in the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Contest, a program that encourages students to solve real-world issues in their community using classroom skills in science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM). 

Ms. Julie Stratton, applicant and Environmental Literacy teacher, and Ms. Jenifer Fritz-Agostini, co-applicant and Media Specialist, were chosen based on their proposal to use STEAM skills to address the need for teenagers and their families to be better informed and prepared during a disaster event.  To tackle this project, Ms. Stratton and students will create an awareness campaign and system to help students and their families prepare for a natural hazard and design a system to help document and report damage after a natural hazard event.  Ms. Fritz- Agostini is working with the students via the Makerspace/Online Tech aspects of the project.

As one of five state finalists in NJ, Ms. Stratton will win a Samsung Chromebook®  to use in her classroom.  Cape Tech will now have the opportunity to advance in the competition for additional classroom technology prizes.  Ms. Stratton and Ms. Fritz-Agostini are working on an Activity Plan outlining how the students will execute their project.  If Ms. Stratton is named the NJ State Winner in December, Cape May Tech will receive a $25,000 Samsung technology package.

The state finalists are listed at http://www.samsung.com/us/solvefortomorrow/index.html .  For additional information on the Cape May County Technical High School, visit www.capemaytech.com.
