DMS Named State Winner in SamsungĀ® Contest

Dorseyville Middle School has been named the state winner in the 2017 Samsung Solve for Tomorrow contest. The school is one of only 51 state winners from across the nation from thousands of schools and Dorseyville’s submission was headed by technology education teacher Joe Eisel.

Prior to becoming a state winner, the school was named a state finalist and, as a state finalist, Eisel submitted an activity plan outlining how he would address the challenge, “Show how STEAM can be applied to help improve your local community.” His entry was chosen for “its innovative approach to advancing interest in STEM among your students as well as making an impact in your community.” As a state winner, Dorseyville will receive a Samsung camcorder, a Samsung laptop, and a minimum of $25,000 in technology. Eisel and his students will use that equipment to create a video demonstrating how STEAM can be applied to help improve the local community, which will then be entered into the national competition.

The Samsung Solve for Tomorrow contest is a nationwide competition that challenges students to creatively use Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math (STEAM) skills to address real-world issues and make a difference in their local communities.
