Illinois Students
From Chicago Tribune:

On May 19, the Illinois Science and Technology Institute brought students and teachers with industry, higher education and other key stakeholders to MSI to celebrate the conclusion of the Research and Development STEM Learning Exchange Challenge’s pilot year. More than 400 students and 20 teachers in 12 Illinois high school partnered with experts at local organizations throughout the semester to solve complex, real-world, problem-based STEM challenges. At MSI, students shared their solutions to challenges ranging from conducting a trade study for a missile defense system and using behavioral economics to encourage better environmental practices, to developing an app for first responders in emergency situations.
