MHS Students Attend EF Global Leadership Summit
MHS Students Attend EF Global Leadership Summit

This summer, a group of Minnetonka High School students traveled to Berlin where they participated in the EF Global Leadership Summit, a 2.5 day conference which encourages innovation through technology.

The 1600 student participants were split into groups of around ten people where they used what they learned from the "Design Thinking Process" to create a prototype of a piece of technology that would make daily life easier. The top ten teams presented their project to an audience of over 2000 students and educators. MHS students Sophia Sumners and Catie Rhodes were among the final teams—and Catie's team won. Her team's prototype will be on display at the Nobel Museum in Sweden.

All the students had a great time collaborating and connecting with students and educators from around the world. Congratulations to all the participants!
