Frederick County Public Schools (FCPS) has just learned that our Career and Technology Center (CTC) Lemelson-MIT InvenTeam won one of 15 grants offered to high school teams nationwide. The local team will receive $9,100 to create a sustainable water-remediation system to provide drinking water for children at the Melka Olba School in Ethiopia. CTC students will collaborate with Ethiopian Children’s Appeal Charity Founder Jo Elizabeth Butler as they develop and deploy their invention. In June they will showcase a prototype of their invention at EurekaFest at MIT in Cambridge, MA. FCPS has posted a video of the students’ project on YouTube at https://youtu.be/Z5fsLOX9GsM. In addition to the InvenTeam students, Mr. Arnold and Ms. Butler, the video depicts the Melka Olba School and its students in Ethiopia.
