Five seventh-graders at Pioneer Heritage Middle School won $10,000 in grants and scholarships through the Lexus Eco Challenge, a STEM contest for grades 6-12.
Arjun Nair, Jackson Young, Jaden Mendez, Rishab Krishnan and Sam Kulkarni built a website with 3-D printing files and created a YouTube video with instructions on how to print a prosthetic arm for those without access to full medical care.
The students will move to the national competition, where they’ll compete for another $30,000 in scholarships and grants. The contest focuses on practical solutions to environmental issues.
The team’s sponsor is Taylor Davis, sixth grade science teacher at Pioneer Heritage.
