Kudos to SOFWOLF for completing another year of their successful summer STEM program. Utilizing aerial drones and other technology tools, high school students learned about tracking and analyzing red tide. Thank you to the Maritime and Defense Technology Hub tenants Florida Fish and Wildlife Research Institute and the USF College of Marine Science for sharing their technical expertise. Thank you to Hub tenants Woolpert, Saildrone, and Pole Star Defense for providing behind-the-scenes tours.
Another Kudos goes out to Woolpert, Saildrone, Pole Star Defense and the rest of the Hub tenants for spending time with the USF STEM Robotics Camp. Over 50 middle school students had the opportunity to learn about the work of these companies and what innovation looks like in St. Petersburg.
