Hillside Middle School is state winner in Samsung science contest
The school community is now producing a public service announcement video detailing the ecological health of the Merrimack River where the school traditionally releases salmon, Hillside language arts teacher Sue Hannan said Wednesday. The video will be the school's submission for Samsung's national contest.
"It's a project for everybody," she said, noting the school's band and chorus are developing background music and a song for the video, art students are preparing art work, and the woodshop teacher will talk about engineering dams and bridges.
Hannan said she applied for the contest in October. She had to describe how the community would benefit from promoting interest in science, technology, engineering and math, commonly known as STEM.
"Not only are we excited to see these projects come to life but also how these young people will use STEM after this context to improve their own futures as well as the wider world," he said in a statement.
