Summer 2022 Verizon STEM Achievers Program Poster and Project Competition
From July 4 to 29, Hillsborough Community College (HCC) – Institute for Corporate and Continuing Education (ICCE) alongside the National Association of Community College Entrepreneurship coordinated the Verizon Innovative Learning STEM Achievers Program, at HCC Dale Mabry Campus, funded by the Verizon Foundation. The science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) program introduced approximately 150 middle school students to Design Thinking and STEM, with a little entrepreneurial mindset for good measure! They worked with 3D Printing & Modeling, Augmented and Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence & Robotics, Circuits & Electronics, and Team Building.
On Friday, July 29, 2022, students had an opportunity to display and pitch their projects at the end-of-camp showcase. The projects reflected problems they identified, ideated, and prototyped using what they learned in camp. This year’s project theme was linked to Hurricane disasters, a real-life problem that impacts Florida families. As part of the display, the students also pitched their ideas to a panel of judges. A wholehearted congratulations to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winning teams!
