NEW ORLEANS一(March 2, 2018)一Engineering consultancy M S Benbow & Associates (MSB) took part in the 62nd-annual Greater New Orleans Science & Engineering Fair (GNOSEF) at Tulane University, sponsoring the Senior Division investigative projects category in the field of Electrical Engineering.
The GNOSEF hosted 350 students in the Region IX parishes of Orleans, Jefferson, St. Bernard and Plaquemines. Entrants fall into two divisions: the Junior Division, comprised of 6th- through 8th-grade students, and the Senior Division, comprised of students in grades 9-12.
One of the oldest such fairs in the nation, GNOSEF awards more than $60,000 in cash and prizes and aims to encourage youth to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) careers. GNOSEF winners are eligible to compete for state honors at the Louisiana Science and Engineering Fair held at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge.
MSB CEO and Founding Partner Michael S. Benbow, P.E., said participating in the fair is a wonderful opportunity for the students in Region IX. “We’re honored to be involved with GNOSEF, which promotes development of skills students will need in their future education and encourages collaboration and interaction between area students and the scientists and engineers working in their community,” he said.
