Bridge to Success / Indino
USF St. Petersburg students and teachers are working closely with youngsters and teachers from Fairmount Park Elementary School in using hands-on science learning to help them build a ‘bridge to success.’ On University Beat, you can see some of the highlights from a summer camp that might convince the youngsters higher education may indeed be in their future.
Barely a year out of college, Luis Batista took a huge chance by quitting his job at a Tampa financial firm to follow a dream. The USF alum is getting close to the realization of his goal, with the launch of “Indino” (pronounced “in da know”), a new smartphone app that helps students set up and organize a calendar of events from a variety of sources. We’ll talk with Luis on this week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7.
USFSP "Bridge to Success" director Fred Bennett talks about the collaborative nature of the program, as well as its goals and possible future.
