High School Biology Goes "Green."
As part of Lockheed Martin’s “Re-Use Engineering Design Challenge,” 9th, 10th and 11th grade Biology students from 18 Orange County high schools designed a unique, usable product made out of household trash and recyclables.
More than 4,500 students participated in the challenge, and the winning team from each school attended an awards ceremony, at which OCPS Superintendent Dr. Jenkins and Lockheed Martin senior leadership announced the overall winning team as well as three secondary awards. The overall winning team members and their faculty advisor each received iPads. Student designs were judged on multiple criteria including uniqueness, creativity, sustainability, marketability and potential environmental impact.
The challenge was designed and implemented by a female Lockheed Martin environmental engineer and OCPS Biology teachers with the intent to interest local students in STEM activities and careers.
