CADSTI-NE October 2017 Newsletter Published

It’s a great pleasure to share with you the highlights of the 2017 CADSTI-NE summer internship program which was a tremendous success. We served the highest number of SPISE graduates yet – 15 student interns working at 7 companies in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Florida, Barbados, Trinidad and Calgary, as well as conducting research in California! The CADSTI-NE organizing committee worked tirelessly throughout the year, meeting nearly every Sunday morning to raise funds for, plan, coordinate and implement this program. We could not have done any of this without your support. Thank you for sharing in our vision to provide these amazing opportunities in science and engineering for our very gifted Caribbean students!
