Gering High STEM program finalists for third straight year

By  | 

GERING, Neb. - (KNEP) - For the third straight year Gering High School named as a finalist for the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Contest.

With a new teacher at the helm, the school is once again one of five in the entire country to be recognized as a finalist. Brett Mozer, who is spearheading the project is excited to take on the project and says the help of students is making it a lot easier for him.

“Them knowing the deadlines and when to have stuff in is a huge advantage,” says Moser. “With that said, we have been able to work on this since the beginning of the year where in past years we may not have started right away. “

Moser says the school will go up against middle schools and high schools for the grant and Samsung awards the top three. Two years ago, the school received one of those coveted honors and last year just missed out.

He wouldn’t go into detail on the project but Moser states the students are working on something that would allow those who are in a wheelchair could get around by using eye movement.

The two classes working on this project include the physics and robotics class and they should find out over the Christmas break if they received one of the three honors given out.
