Palmer Trinity Student And Steeem Club President Speaks At Nomcon 2020
Palmer Trinity School’s Science, Technology, Engineering, Environment, Entrepreneurship, and Math Club president and founder, Benjamin Arnold, was a speaker at the 2020 Nation of Makers Conference in Oregon earlier this month. He was invited as a representative of the winning team, which competed in Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden and NASA’s Growing Beyond Earth Maker Contest.
During the conference, Benjamin discussed the team’s winning design of an optimal plant box that could be used to successfully grow the ‘Outredgeous’ variety of red romaine lettuce in a microgravity environment.
“We are extremely proud of what this talented and hard-working group has accomplished and of Benjamin for representing our school on such an important platform such as Makers, and creating solutions that have a global impact,” said Patrick Roberts, head of school.
In addition to Benjamin, Palmer Trinity students and STEEEM members Blake Cobo, Alex Fumagalli, Nikolas Gianulis, Patrick Grattan, Nicholas Hernandez, Christopher Oeltjen, Carlos Penzini, Tatiana Multach, Jack Sulkes, and John Lukas Turner-Smith also attended the virtual conference.
