Local STEM News

  • 19 February 2020 – The 2nd annual Modeling and Simulation (M&S) Student Day hosted by Team Orlando and NCS was a success! Fourteen teams from eight high schools and technical schools showcased a variety of high-tech MS&T projects. Participating students are preparing for careers in the MS&T Industry.  The students’ efforts were supported by the local MS&T workforce, who took their time to discuss projects with teams and give constructive feedback for improvement. Based on student demonstrations and the ability to clearly communicate the importance of their product, industry workers voted for the top three projects. The MS&T workforce  benefits by meeting their future employees and having the opportunity to hire interns who clearly demonstrate their qualifications to enter the MS&T workforce.

    1.    BioBlaster was recognized as the best overall student project.
