Supporting STEM: BSC Volunteers Judge Middle School Design Competition

BSC Group’s Heather Hamilton and Matt Ciminella served as volunteer judges for Mass STEM Hub’s Design Showcase. The event, which took place at the Peabody Essex Museum, engaged a group of more than 100 middle school students. Young engineers were challenged to design and build a robotic pull toy using a variety of skills that they were taught earlier in the day.

Matt Ciminella stated, “I think that promoting access to STEM careers benefits all in the sense that it appropriates a new perspective into the field. Giving everyone a seat at the table both enhances those career paths while also creating social equity in society as a whole.”
