Infinite Recharge at Home
The FIRST Robotics team completed submissions for this year's competition. It was not as exciting as the first year, since all of the in person events have been cancelled now for two years in a row, but the submissions were good. One of the events required us to come up with a game idea and pitch it for the judges. The team produced a game of Robotic dodgeball. Let's hope we win and get a chance to play it for real.

GREAT NEWS! Six CMIT students have been selected in the PGCPS STEM Fair to participate in the Area STEM Fair May 9-14. The Area Level STEM Fair includes entrants from PGCPS, Calvert, and St. Mary's Counties. Congratulations to CMIT Contenders! The congratulatory email was sent from PGCPS Science Office, Department of Curriculum and Instruction to our 6 Top Tiger scholars whose projects have been approved for entry into our 73rd Annual Area Science Fair. These 6 Top Tigers will compete among participants from Calvert, Saint Mary’s, and our own Prince Georges counties. The Scientific Review Committee has evaluated their registration packet. Our 6 CMIT projects have met the criteria for participation, held virtually from May 9-14, 2021. These finalists will have the opportunity to compete for scholarships and prizes valuing over one million dollars. Meet our 6 contenders: Project Title: Over My Dead Body!: The Effect of Mummification on Enzymes My name is Jasmyne Wilson, and I’m a high school freshman at CMIT. For as long as I could remember, I’ve always been somewhat of a perfectionist, always going above and beyond and trying my absolute best when accomplishing goals. I carry this wherever I go and apply it to my academics as well as my personal hobbies. I love giving back to the world, and this STEM fair is exactly what I’m doing. I want to share my research and data with others to utilize it to better this world and make people happy and healthy. Project Title: Can Radishes Prevent Soil Erosion? My name is Zainab AIKidd, and I am a junior HS. I believe that success is achieved through passion and hard work. Winning a science fair is always secondary to me. As an environmentalist, I recognize the importance of sharing my research for continuous development of testing radishes and other well-rooted plants to prevent soil erosion, which has led to increased pollution and sedimentation in streams and rivers, clogging the waterways and causing declines in fish and other species. Project Title: Yellow Rain My name is Kyree Wilson. I am 17 and in the eleventh grade attending CMIT North Academy. Ever since I was young, my mother placed a quote on my wall that sticks with me to this day. It says, "Always remember you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think, and loved more than you know." That quote sticks with me in everything I do and motivates me to break barriers as well as go beyond the boundaries placed in front of me. When I was first introduced to the idea of doing a stem fair project, I wanted to put my all into it because I wanted to make that quote a reality in my life by going beyond what I believed I could do as well as pushing myself to do something that benefits more than just myself. After being given the opportunity to participate in this stem fair with my fellow classmates, I cannot wait to see where I get in stem in the future. Project Title: Probiotic Solubility in Water Qualities Gabriella Solomon, student-athlete and a hard-working student. She is passionate about pursuing a career in the medical field. Gabriella is a team-player and always looks for solutions when things get tricky. She enjoys helping others and is actively involved in afterschool activities like CMIT Lead, Yearbook Club, Asian-American Pacific Islander Union, and Women’s Varsity Lacrosse. Project Title: Can You Handle the Heat? My name is Morgan Pringle, and I'm a junior in HS. Norman Vincent Peale once said, "Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars". I live by this motto to motivate me to pursue ambitious goals; even if I fail to achieve them, I can still accomplish other great things if I try my best. Although winning the STEM fair is a great accomplishment, and I am proud of my hard work, I aspire to do continuous research to find innovative ways to help people in need with solar energy, and in the future, Psychological processes. Project Title: Fruit Water Filtration My name is Cameron Salisbury, and I am a junior in high school. A quote from a wise man named J.Cole states, “Anything is possible, you gotta dream as you’ve never seen obstacles.” I remind myself of this quote often because it tells me that through unrelenting determination and hard work, that even the unachievable can be achieved. For me, STEM is using science to progress the advancement of society. While winning the STEM fair is a goal of mine, I hope that my research will inspire more research relating to finding alternative ways of filtering water which contribute to overall health.
