 to S.I.G.N.A.L (Shivum.Ibrahim.Galen.National.Association.Levees) team from Bowditch Middle School on receiving honorable mention in the 2017 eCYBERMISSION STEM competition. In this competition, teams propose a solution to a real problem in their communities and compete for State, Regional and National Awards.

Three Bowditch 7th graders - Galen Guo, Shivum Kapoor, & Ibrahim Masri presented a project on the Foster City Levee System improvements to preserve tidal wetlands.

They collected data from different resources, did experiment using proposed Levee enhancements including printing 3D models to use and run experiments, analyzed the data, and presented their proposed solution to the City of Foster City.

eCYBERMISSION is a web-based Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics competition for 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th grade teams across the US; it is one of the STEM initiatives offered by the Army Educational Outreach Program (AEOP).
