American School students are recognized for their innovative scientific thinking

The High School’s 12th grade students recently participated in the Toshiba/NSTA ExploraVision call for innovative STEAM/NGSS (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math/Next Generation Science Standards) projects.

This international call for projects offers students the opportunity to learn more about future technologies as well as develop projects that put their collaborative, problem solving, and critical thinking skills into practice.

American School students submitted two projects, “Technology for all” and “Holograms”. Said projects received an honorable mention for being in the top 10% from the more than 3000 submissions from Mexico, the United States, and Canada.

Competitions, such as the Toshiba/NSTA ExploraVision, provide students with the opportunity to discover their potential and explore their ability to offer creative and innovative solutions to real-world problems, thereby demonstrating that young people really can make a difference in their local and global communities.
