Congratulations to our ExploraVision team, Alexandra, Jacques, Katya, and Rafi and their Faculty Coach Dr. Paul Castle for winning an honorable mention at the Toshiba/ExploraVision competition.  This year's team was the highest ranked 9th grade team in the state.  More than 14,000 students from around the country and Canada compete in the ExploraVision program.  

In the competition, teams researched and selected an emerging technology and explored its creation, function and operation. In addition, they projected their chosen technology 20 years into the future and prepared an in-depth report that conveyed their vision of how it might develop.  The JHSC team's submission was the 'Graphilter', which uses reverse osmosis through a graphene filter, to purify water supplies. 

School Principal, Dr. Paul Castle, extended his congratulations to the team, “for their commitment to the project over many months, their resilience, their teamwork and their well-deserved success.”  The school also recognized eleventh grader and 2012 Team Captain, Eva G. for mentoring this year's team.
