Clark County students in Mrs. Angela Yake’s Cyber Security program have earned a $15,000 prize in the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow competition through Donors Choose. 

Clark County students in the Cyber Security program at the Springfield-Clark Career Technology Center earned a spot during the 2020-2021 school year as semi-finalists in the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow competition, securing a $15,000 prize in Samsung technology and classroom supplies for the program.

    The Springfield-Clark CTC was the only semi-finalist team in the state of Ohio in the competition that challenges students in grades 6-12 to show how STEM can be applied to help improve their communities. 

    Inspired by the COVID-19 pandemic, Mrs. Angela Yake’s students chose to pursue technology solutions to make students feel more connected to the classroom when they are learning at home, including augmented and virtual reality. The project’s applications can be extended to provide solutions for high-risk individuals, including elderly or immune-deficient individuals, to connect with family and friends.

    “Real-world applications and hands-on learning are key components of the engaging educational experience we offer at the Springfield-Clark Career Technology Center,” said Superintendent Michelle Patrick. “This project is an exceptional example of how students can be empowered through their learning to explore and implement solutions to key issues affecting our communities.”

    The SCCTC team included twelve students: Grayce Tipton, Victoria McFadden, Jay Lee, Nathan Dirlam, Hunter Cantrell, Austin Keyton, Owen Kojola, Bryce Dray, Samual Hendershot, Shane Sprinkle, Shakor Gilbert, and Joshua Weng.
