Students in grades 5 through 12 in six surrounding counties were invited to participate in the AV Madness Contest sponsored by the Technology Center of the Piedmont Triad. To enter, participants had to come up with an innovative, thought-provoking answer to the question, “What is the next big thing in technology?”
The contest winners were Brizheet Andrews (Peeler Open Elementary), Camden Smith (Brightwood Elementary), and Aaron Finch (Southeast Guilford High School). The students shared ideas that varied from solar powered mobile devices to artificial intelligence. Each winner received a $50 gift card.
William “Bill” Brown, CEO of the Technology Center of the Piedmont Triad, discussed the importance of STEM programs at all grade levels, even as college majors. “There are a lot of bright minds in this area. The more that the Technology Center can create a climate where they can stay in this area, enjoy the lifestyle, and give their resources back to the community, I think it would be great,” Brown stated.
