Two teams were recognized recently at an international competition held at Indiana University.
The "International Future Problem Solving" competition on June 10 honored North Haven High School Seniors Evelyn Fisher, Myles Mocarski, Jennifer Royka and John Savenelli with a second place award, according to a statement from the school.
Sophomores Matt Ennis, Jesse Morrow, Amanda Royka and Meredith Whitcomb placed seventh in the competition which includes championship teams from across the United States and ten other countries.
The students tackled a hypothetical situation in which medications for illnesses could be tailored to a person’s genetic makeup through DNA screening.
“The Future Problem Solving Program enhances our student’s education through teaching critical thinking, problem solving and methods to analyze complex situations. These students have worked hard to achieve this and we are all very proud of their accomplishments,” said teacher and coach Tom Marak.
