FUSE Challenge Design Partners

In addition, FUSE gratefully acknowledges the support of our challenge design partners. These collaborations allow us to incorporate the expertise of university researchers, local artists and designers, and industry experts to develop innovative STEAM challenges. These challenges, like the Solar Roller, developed with Siemens, expose students to industry technology and provide a glimpse into future STEAM fields.
