Angela Jackson-SummersFinishing as a runner-up isn’t bad for the first-ever Warfighter Innovation in Science & Engineering (WISE) competition.

The inaugural competition was hosted April 27, virtually. Each of the four service academies showcased innovation through STEM projects.

Cadet teams presented three projects:

Each service academy presented their projects, engaged in a Q&A session and were evaluated by a panel of judges.

“It was a three-way tie for second. We each received $900 and a WISE trophy for the Academy,” said Second Class Cadet (2/c) Allison Ruth.

Innovation like this is central to the Coast Guard mission. See how.
