8th Grader Wins 2nd place - Science Award at National STEM Competition
Kasey Moore, 8th grader, and Junior High Scientific Research Program student won 2nd place - Science Award, at the Broadcom MASTERS STEM Competition!
 
Kasey, the only student from South Florida, was among a selected group of 30 middle school finalists of an original 1,807 qualifiers from 47 states and three U.S. territories. This selection places Kasey among the top 2% of STEM projects in the United States.
 
The competition took place in Washington, D.C., back in person for the first time since the 2019 competition. Each of the 30 finalists participated in team challenges in addition to being judged on their science research projects. The challenges leveraged project-based learning and tested their mastery of 21st Century skills of critical thinking, communication, creativity, and collaboration in each of the STEM areas.
 

First and second-place winners of the STEM Awards demonstrated acumen and promise in science, technology, engineering, and math. First-place winners were awarded $3,500 and second-place winners received $2,500 to be used toward a STEM summer camp experience.
