Carolina Alliance for Technology (CAT) had four students take the eCYBERMISSION Challenge, which is a web based science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) competition where they had to propose a solution to a real problem in our community. Aaron Walker, Leah Atkins, Nikiyah Williams and Jerod Walker chose flooding conditions in Five Points. Together, they had to research, hypothesize, experiment and use STEM to propose a solution. The students had two instrumental mentors from SCANA that kept them on track with real world use of technology and problem solving. The students took a field study and followed the Rocky Branch Watershed fro the Martin Luther King, Jr. Park to the USC capus. They toured the USC Engineering buildings and culminated sending in their ission folder with lunch provided by Intel.
