One group of Providence Day School sophomores were recently named state finalists in the 2012 Siemens We Can Change the World Challenge.
The competition is a kindergarten through 12th grade sustainability challenge. High school students formed teams of two to four students and worked with a teacher or mentor to identify an environmental issue with implications beyond the community while researching solutions to the problem.
The Chargers team, comprised of Cam Love, Tanner Love, Savannah Morgan and Daniel Morrow, developed a method of harnessing energy through electromagnetic inductance to seek less dependence on non-reusable energy. The team’s advisor was Barbara Morrow, a science teacher at the school.
The team is still in the running to be recognized as a Siemens national finalist in the competition.
