The Oldham-Ramona School is in the running for a national award. Samsung recently notified the school district that it had been chosen for their 2019-2020 Solve for Tomorrow contest. Each state has six schools bidding for the national title. Teacher Robert Bergstrom’s project plan was selected, helping Oldham-Ramona earn a Samsung tablet for classroom usage.
Bergstrom has successfully been selected for this honor three out of the last four years. His networking, server and Wi-Fi concept was submitted to the contest for both the Baltic and Oldham-Ramona School districts. Baltic was selected as a state finalist for the school year 2016-2017. The next school year, Bergstrom transferred to Ramona, where the school was selected as a state finalist and then went on to represent the state in the national segment of the contest. The school received 25-thousand dollars in technology including: tablets, chrome books, television, robotic vacuum cleaner, smart speakers, Samsung Galaxy S8 and a 360 degree camera.
Oldham-Ramona will submit an activity plan identifying the next steps of the project by December 4th.
