Notable achievements[edit]

In October 2010 Pike Central High School was selected as one of 14 Lemelson-MIT "InvenTeams" and one of only four teams to present on stage at the convention. The program grants selected high schools up to $10,000 to invent technological solutions to real-world problems. More than 1,200 schools applied for the grant, and a judging panel of educators, researchers, alumni and staff from MIT; industry experts; and past Lemelson-MIT Award winners selected Pike Central High School as one of the grantees. It is the first Indiana school to be picked for the program.[1] The Pike Central High School InvenTeam has built a lightweight disaster relief shelter that is both inexpensive and easy to assemble and disassemble. Made from corrugated polypropylene sheets, the shelter also has a water filtration system, and the team is currently working to add an alternative energy source to supply light to the structure.[1]
