In the state competition held last Tuesday, the CHS Science Olympiad team took 2nd place. A great job to the DeLacy Humbert and Kendra Lunday for your coaching efforts!
Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Contest: Congratulations to DeLacy again! Good luck in the state competition!
The following is from the formal press release:
Capital High School, located in Helena, Montana, 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).
DeLacy Humbert’s physical science classroom was chosen based on their proposal to use STEAM skills to address prescription medication abuse. To tackle this project, students will propose a new design for prescription medication bottles.
As one of five state finalists in Montana, DeLacy Humbert will win a Samsung Chromebook® to use in her classroom. Capital High School will now have the opportunity to advance in the competition for additional classroom technology prizes. Mrs. Humbert is currently working on an Activity Plan outlining how her students will execute their project. If she is named the Montana State Winner in December, Capital High School will receive a $25,000 Samsung technology package!
