On November 8, the same day that Nevada Senator Jacky Rosen introduced a resolution designating November 8th as “National Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Day”, Incline High School students shared what they plan to do with the $7500 grant they recently received from Lemelson-MIT.

Last year, engineering teacher Adam Shoda initiated the process for applying for the Lemelson-MIT grant, working with engineering students to create a winning plan for an invention that is very much needed in the Lake Tahoe area.

His class submitted an initial application in the spring with a generic idea of how they envisioned their snow load invention, then submitted a more intense secondary application over the summer.
