COATESVILLE, PA — Students from Bishop Shanahan High School’s STEM team won the grand champion title at Gov. Wolf’s STEM Competition this year. The theme was “Improving Pennsylvania through STEM.”
The team of seven students won the overall medical category by creating a portable, life-saving device that improves the success rate of cardiopulmonary resuscitation, or CPR.
This prototype earned Bishop Shanahan’s STEM team first place out of 26 student teams from across Pennsylvania. The challenge was to address the needs of Pennsylvanians while utilizing their STEM-related knowledge and skills.
On Wednesday, June 12, Rep. Dan Williams welcomed the Bishop Shanahan STEM team into the House chamber to be recognized for their accomplishment.
“To see the innovation and dedication these students gave to building a life-saving device is truly remarkable. Our future is in good hands with these bright minds. I’m so pleased that my House colleagues joined me in recognizing these fine students and thank Governor Wolf and Senator Dinniman for taking time out of their day to congratulate them as well,” Williams said.
