BISW has brought our STEM education to new heights. On Monday we launched the Real World Design Challenge (RWDC) during our morning assembly and we were privileged to have Dr. Ralph Coppola and Mr. Jeffery Coppola join us to introduce this innovative challenge. This year, RWDC will be addressing the food shortage challenge that confronts us due to the surplus population by 2050. BISW students will undertake this mission to design the best plan and compete with other teams from the world. It is an incredible opportunity for our students to learn from the finest engineers in the country and utilize professional engineering software to develop their solutions. Prizes include up to 50,000 USD in scholarship money awarded to finalists in this exciting global challenge! Apply the lessons of the classroom to the technical problems and take the Real World Design Challenge.
