One classroom at Sachse High has joined just 10 other Texas schools in advancing for a national competition.
Animation teacher Erik Bushland, along with about half a dozen of his students, was declared one of the 11 Texas finalists in the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Contest. The program invites sixth through 12th grade classes to solve a problem using STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) principles.
“Our proposal is to create air purifiers that attach to light poles and street signs, that are solar-powered and clean the air,” Bushland explained. “With all the bad news going on about climate change, we wanted to do something. Every bit helps, and it should be sustainable.”
