On Friday, January 18, a group from the Celebration Foundation had an exciting opportunity to visit BRIDG at NeoCity. BRIDG is a not-for-profit, public-private partnership that is focused on the manufacturing and development of advanced technologies such as microelectronics and smart sensors. It is located at NeoCity, which is off 192 and the Florida Turnpike in Osceola County.

The team from the Celebration Foundation is currently looking at ways that we can expand the mission of the WINGS (Women’s Initiative Nurturing Girls’ Strengths) program to include encouraging young ladies in the Celebration K-8 and high school to pursue interests in the STEM fields.  As part of that effort, a dedicated group of volunteers has been exploring different STEM-related organizations in the community. The group was excited to see that an amazing, high-tech facility such as BRIDG exists right here in Osceola County.
