RHMS students receive grant to develop tech idea

RICHMOND HILL, Ga. (WTOC) - Richmond Hill Middle School students are working hard and it’s paying off.

Samsung selected their idea as one of the 75 projects from students across the country to fund.

“We’re actually making a device that will help people stop touching their faces to prevent the spread airborne diseases such as coronavirus and other viruses,” said student Dylan Byun.

The school’s principal tells WTOC she’s excited to see what develops from this challenge.

“They are part of our STEM program, and they were tasked with creating some STEM-like apps for Samsung. This is our second time that we have won this challenge, made it through round 1. We’re so excited. Ms. Collins and her group of students have been awarded 15 thousand dollars buy Samsung for classroom supplies that get to use to continue to create and model for our STEM program, so we’re very excited,” said Principal Dr. Elizabeth Bennett.
