Burnaby South “Solves for Tomorrow”

The future will be inspired by students who are proficient in STEM subjects – and Samsung is helping engage students in STEM with its “Solve for Tomorrow” Challenge. Burnaby South student Polina Petlitsyna worked with students from the BCSD to create a prototype for a bracelet-sensory system that translates sounds into vibrations that can support them in dance. Ky Kim, a student in South’s Video Arts program beautifully captured the magic behind this “Solve for Tomorrow” idea – and it was selected as one of four winners in Canada. The school is looking forward to receiving  $20,000 in Samsung technology – and advancing this prototype to actuality. WATCH IT
