BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA – Through a specialized grant to the Brevard Schools Foundation from The Boeing Company, the first Boeing FUSE Studio will open in North Brevard at James Madison Middle in Titusville on August 23.
Madison Middle is located at 3375 Dairy Road, Titusville, 32796.
FUSE is an interactive learning lab designed to introduce students to science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM). The labs feature a variety of challenges where students can “level up” or even create their own experiences. The challenges help students discover strengths and passions related to STEAM.
The Boeing Company will fund “FUSEing K-12 STEAM for Tomorrow’s Innovators,” a STEAM-integration project. This grant also enables Brevard Public Schools to partner with Northwestern University on FUSE projects.
BPS Superintendent Mark Mullins and representatives from Boeing and FUSE will participate in the ribbon cutting and event activities.
Students will be assigned FUSE challenges from Northwestern University, and participate in a day of hands-on activities presented by GMiS (Great Minds in STEM) Viva Technology, a national K-12 education program. There will be an opportunity to tour the newly-furnished, high-tech studio and see students take on a computer-based design project.
The event begins at 8:30 a.m. on August 23 in the media center. Student activities will begin immediately following the ceremony and will continue throughout the day until approximately 3:30 p.m.
