STEM Academy and Bentley Partner

STEM Academy students partnered with Bentley as part of the STEM Practicum experience. Students participated in everything from global marketing and finance to the social media war room to applied research.  Bentley Systems provided an intense three days of immersion designed to give eight students insight into the high-tech industry and what it is like to work at Bentley. Bentley Systems provides software solutions for architects and engineers to efficiently design infrastructure—everything from bridges to highways. In one session, our students used problem solving skills to build an Augmented Reality Sandbox that uses tactile interaction to create topography models. Student Jack Manthorp commented on his experience, “the most important aspect of my internships was to gain a profound sense of the technical side of these businesses, but in the context of the larger picture of their business models.”
