NSSTA Member & Class National Finalists in Samsung's Solver for Tomorrow Challenge

Monday, March 21, 2022 2:00 PM | OPEN Executive Director (Administrator)

Congratulations to Steve Gaskill from K.O. Knudson JHS in Las Vegas and his students who were just named national finalists in Samsung's Solve for Tomorrow Challenge.  They get $50,000 and a trip to New York to pitch their idea to Samsung!

Their project was to design better bus benches for the Las Vegas summers.  Their solution was to replace the RTC's current steel benches with benches out of concrete made using recycled sunflower stalk aggregates.  This was one of the top ten finalists in the country.

You can vote for this idea in the "Community Choice Vote" every day here:
