SimIS had the opportunity to support this competition by becoming a selected sponsor of the event and volunteer. SimIS selected judges from their department to offer advice, coaching, and skills that may assist with developing a strong lead in using problem-solving techniques and organizational skills. Dr. Andreas Tolk, Dr. Yiannis Papelis, and Elizabeth Johnson attended as judges on the behalf of SimIS.
During the event, students geared up to show off and compete with their models. The students built their models based on engineering concepts and strategies that helped them compete in the competition.
In the nature of this event, the students and the attendees were exposed to the act of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics)
