Harrison Middle School in Yarmouth, a town which hosts an annual clam festival, didn't know that the coast of Maine was under siege by an invasive crab that has been decimating clam populations until they started researching ways to combat the crabs.

Last fall, students in Mr. Cuthbert's 7th grade class were challenged to come up with a problem to solve, and chose to explore the issue. For their efforts, they were honored by Samsung as one of fifteen finalists nationwide in the company's Solve for Tomorrow Science and Technology Competition. But the real prize in their eyes is finding a solution that will help clams, and clammers, survive.
