New Grant Awarded to b-Cubed

Congratulations to Nicci Nunes and her 21st century science class at Liberty High School for their recent b-Cubed grant from F3 & Associates. The  land survey company in Benicia uses state-of-the art 3D technology that keeps them on the leading edge in the US and Europe.  The company's Principal Sean Finn delivered a check directly to the classroom that will underwrite the purchase of innovative Raspberry Pi technology -- a game changer for these students. The note on the check reads:  "Be stubborn about your goals and flexible about your methods."  For more information about b-Cubed and F3, check out these links:  http://f3-inc.com http://www.beniciaunified.org/b-cubed
