Introducting FlexFactor

FlexFactor is the cornerstone of MS-SHIPS aimed at the K-12 demographic. It’s a project-based learning initiative where students tackle real-world problems using Flexible Hybrid Electronics. Imagine a classroom where students develop a product from concept to pitch, covering everything from biochemistry sensors to economic models, all aligned with their current curriculum!

Ms. Kiaira Quinn made this wonderful Shark Tank clip from our last presentation on Feb 28th at Pike National Bank. Pike National Bank was gracious enough to offer us their community room for our presentations, provide judges to help evaluate the projects, plus host snacks and drinks for the students! We are proud to partner with Pike National Bank for these events and recognize their contributions to SMCC and the community. A special thank you to Ms. Quinn for documenting the event and volunteering as an in classroom mentor for future programs! Be sure to check them out on Facebook page as well. @PikeNationalBank
