Case Study: Mission Critical Operator
Mission-critical facilities secure vital data and systems. If power goes out in a data center, bio lab, or hospital, lives may be lost. Mission-critical facilities must stay online running at optimum temperatures 24/7, 365 days a year. Their operating principle is no interruptions: no exceptions. Who trains the technicians to troubleshoot technical failures? Wake Tech Community College (WTCC) does, and they asked us to help. Learn more...
Are you attending the Interservice / Industry Training, Simulation, and Education Con-ference? Come see us! The premier modeling and simulation event will be held this week at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando. We'll be in room 370. We'd love to partner with you, or just learn what you've been up to. Contact us to set up a meeting.
STEM Week and the Great American Teach-In
Science, technology, engineering, mathematics: STEM education of today creates innovators of tomorrow. Our VP Randy Brown will speak at STEM week at I/ITSEC, put on by the National Training and Simulation Association. Randy will be on the Video Game Tech in Modeling & Simulation panel, for middle- and high-school students. Randy also took part in the Great American Teach-In in on November 9. The Teach-In matched Florida K-12 students with subject matter experts to learn about exciting STEM career opportunities. Randy shared with the kids his passion about virtual worlds and simulation.
