Omro High School team

This Omro High School team was one of five winners of the national Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Contest.

OMRO — A team from Omro High School is one of five winners of a national engineering contest that challenges students to solve problems in their communities, according to a story on DPI-ConnectEd.

The team built a sensor to determine ice thickness in real-time and relay it to an app called Stat-Ice. Their goal is to help anglers and others make educated decisions about going out on the ice.

About 8,000 people fall through the ice and drown each year.

The team wins $100,000 in technology and supplies. They’re continuing to work on the prototype and have applied for an MIT grant to help them refine it and work toward patents.

See the full story on DPI’s website.
