Jun. 14, 2017:  Bronxville High School students welcomed students from Finland--who were visiting the country to hear from American entrepreneurs--to their school on May 25. They shared ideas and discussed the several inventions Bronxville students had created as part of the Incubator Club.

"Members of the Incubator Club and the Finnish students discussed their ideas and the various stages of development," Principal Ann Meyer said. "They also discussed challenges with the development process. It was interesting for each group to see the other's focus in terms of the problem their ideas were hoping to solve."

The Finnish students, whose ideas focused on social connections and political action, shared with the students the business ideas they had developed to connect people for various purposes through applications.

Following their discussion, the visitors met with students in Ben Cornish's Advanced Physics class to hear about their creations, ask questions, and provide feedback. Some of the students' projects included a motion-controlled RoboArm, an electromagnetic pulse generator, a solar panel charger, a motorized skateboard, magnetic shoes, and an Arduino LED Lightsaber.

In addition, the Finnish group toured the school building and discussed with the Bronxville students the differences and similarities between school in the United States and Finland.

"The Finnish students were fascinated by how young our students start elementary school in the U.S. and the amount of work they have," said Meyer, who added that children in Finland don't start school until the age of seven. "In general, the Finnish students could not believe the amount of homework our students reported."
