Two Southcrest Christian School student teams named national win

Two Southcrest Christian School student teams named national winners of STEM competition sponsored by the U.S. Army

On June 21, 2019, The U.S. Army Educational Outreach Program announced the 2018-19 national winners of the 17th annual eCYBERMISSION competition. The judges chose four wining teams, one from each grade, from grades 6th through 9th, and two of those four teams are from Southcrest Christian School. The 2018-19 national winning teams from Southcrest are:

Sixth grade (H.O.T.C.A.R.S.): Alexa Tindall, Ethan Djajadi and Josiah Morales worked with team advisor Laura Wilbanks to help combat the issue of hot car related deaths by creating a device reminding parents when their children are still in the car.

Seventh grade (Oh, Deer!): Isaiah Baier, Aaron Barbee, Caleb Cole-Smith and Dimitrio Martinez worked with Wilbanks to solve the problem of deer related automobile accidents by using flora illumination.

“I love that our students are contributing real work for real people with real problems through their STEM experiences,” says Linda Merriott, superintendent at Southcrest Christian School. “They are making a real difference!”

According to eCYBERMISSION, the web-based science, technology, engineering and math program—sponsored by the U.S. Army and administered by the National Science Teacher Association – is designed to cultivate student interest in STEM by encouraging students in grades six through nine to develop solutions to real-world problems in their local communities. The winning teams were chosen from 20 national finalist teams, which were selected from 5,097 teams that entered the 2018 competition.
