This teacher has attended trainings at ATU STEM Institute and we are asking for your help:

Will Squires, and his students at Caddo Hills High School has a team competing in The 2015 Samsung Solve for Tomorrow competition. In this phase, they are up against 15 other schools from across the nation. They have submitted video to the Samsung website and voting is open. We had the priviege of working with Will in trainings through the ATU STEM Institute and are so excited about this opportunity for he and his students.
Five schools will be chosen to receive $120,000 in technology.
The best/easiest way for the CHHS team to be sure that they are one of the five is by winning the People's Choice: the video that has the most votes at the end of the voting window is the People's Choice winner.
I am asking that you please go to one or all of the links below, copy and paste into a url and vote for Caddo Hills High School's video and that you pass this on to as many others
as you can and ask them to vote and pass it on as well.

This partnership has allowed for professional learning focused on the Literacy Design Collaborative (LDC) and Mathematics Design Collaborative (MDC). The Literacy Design Collaborative (LDC) offers a fresh approach to incorporating literacy into middle and high school content areas. The Mathematics Design Collaborative (MDC) focuses on building student understanding of mathematics concepts by working through problems, rather than memorizing formulas and plugging them into a page of workbook problems.
