One REACH Challenge team from John F. Kennedy High School in the Bellmore-Merrick Central High School District was named a finalist while another team is a semifinalist in the International Technology and Engineering Educators Association STEM Competition.

Jack Levit, Mark Prainito, Jayden Simon, Mason Tso, Evan Kolberg, Ellie Gelman, Cole Wasserman, Maxwell Frank and Kyle Wasserman were named REACH finalists after they created Portion Pal, which helps children from overstuffing their mouths with food.

Daniel Lin, Brendan Chiu, Aaron Khan and Joleen Shau were named semifinalists for their creation of the Click Clack Knapsack, which aims to help individuals with mobility challenges access materials from their backpack easier.

The REACH Challenge is an impactful Adaptive & Assistive Technology design-thinking project for middle school, high school and college level STEM programs.

The teams will receive gift cards for the school’s advanced science research program.

REACH Challenge team leads are invited to receive their award at ITEEA's 86th Annual Conference, March 6-9 in Memphis, TN.
