McNair Academic HS selected as State Finalist

We are thrilled to share that under the guidance and direction of Emma Osoria, Science teacher and Department Chair, McNair Academic HS has been selected as a state finalist for the 2023-2024 Samsung Solve for Tomorrow STEM competition!
Congratulations to the team comprising of McNair students Fay Davis and Eza Iqbal! They have won $2,500 in Samsung technology for their classroom and will progress to the next phase of the contest!
The annual Samsung Solve for Tomorrow competition challenges public school students in grades 6-12 to explore the role science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) subjects play in addressing issues of vital concern in their local communities. Participating students engage in active, hands-on learning that can be applied to real-world problems – making STEM more tangible and showcasing its value beyond the classroom. The winning schools were selected from a pool of 300 State Finalists who submitted detailed lesson plans outlining how their students propose using STEM to address an important community issue.
