Tecumseh High School Learners Receive iChallengeU Grant

The iChallengeU program was a county-wide Project-Based Learning competition where each school district created a "team" that had to answer the question "How do we get prescription drugs in Lenawee County back where they belong?" 

The Tecumseh team consisted of the 4 Students Against Drunk Drivers (SADD) officers; Carlee Swan, Rachel Stockford, Kylee Dennis and Jessica Kane. The team worked starting in October on answering the guiding question. They had the idea to create a pill dispenser controlled by fingerprint technology (similar to what is on most cell phones today). The dispenser would only provide the exact prescription at times designated by a pharmacist. They then partnered with the Mechatronics class to created a 3D model of the dispenser using the 3D printer.

The THS team received a $500 grant and plans to put it towards continuing the work that the SADD chapter does in relation to prescription drug prevention at THS.
