SCE Supports Science Pioneers Science Fair

SCE is proud to support the Science Pioneers Greater Kansas City Science and Engineering Fair as a Special Award organization.

Each year SCE provides a senior division award for the “best interdisciplinary use and application of computer science and engineering principles”. The 2014 winner is Madison Nasteff from Liberty High School. Madison designed a low cost device to help with parallel parking. She designed and built the hardware, wrote the software for the dashboard device and even tested it on a Honda Accord. Congratulations to Madison and her teacher mentor, Rebecca Groebe!

Also, a special thank you to our SCE faculty, Vijay Kumar and Ganesh Thiagarajan, who have served as judges at this event over the past several years and to Jane Vogl of the SCE dean’s office who helps coordinate this award.
