Many of the organizers believe the competition also changes the careers and personal lives of the many competitors.
“I love watching team members communicate with each other about their ideas. “Earth Science Policy Analyst Sarah Hemmings said.
Huntsville was chosen as this year’s, and it’s just a moment when someone actually latches on to an idea that you’re trying to communicate and understands where you’re going with it. “Mission control” due to its reputation as a center of innovation and technology.
