Finalists for Facebook's Engineer For The Week

The entire Panther family enjoyed revealing the big news to our finalist team Wednesday morning about their invitation to the Achievement Summit at Facebook headquarters in California. Our three students, Franklin "Max" Bellomy, Jihyeon Na, and Gonzalo Soto were celebrated for their work and Facebook spotlighted their social impact game project due to the student's focus on the serious issue of texting and driving. Their game provides insight into the challenge of texting and driving by forcing you to multitask or divert your attention while approaching an objective.
