Connecticut Science Center hosts Cyber-Challenge competition May 21

DESCRIPTION

Nearly 130 teens will gather at the Connecticut Science Center on Dec. 5 for the start of the third year of Cyber-Challenge (also known as ITEST Project Opening Doors), a program that places high school students in teams to answer complex questions posed by four of Connecticut’s leading STEM companies: General Electric, Northeast Utilities, Pfizer, and United Technologies Corp.  The students are freshmen from New Britain High School, East Hartford High School, and Wilby High School in Waterbury, and this event will kickoff a yearlong project in which they’ll use academic, interpersonal, and multimedia skills to solve real-world problems.
