For 77 years, MRIGlobal has carried out our founding mission: To attract and retain some of the best and brightest analytic and scientific minds in the Midwest. Today, that mission starts earlier than ever, as we are also committed to developing the young minds of those who will go on to change the world with their ideas and accomplishments. That is why we were proud to serve as the Platinum Presenting Sponsor for this year’s Greater Kansas City Science and Engineering Fair. Through this work, we not only improve the world through our research, but also benefit students from the communities in which we work, play, and live.
In late March, the fair wrapped up its 71st year of supporting and inspiring students from elementary, middle, and high schools from across the 15-county region. As a company, we’ve supported this fair every year since its inception, nearly as long as we’ve been around. It could be a coincidence, but we are confident it was beneficial to have a scientific research institute like ours around when they were first organizing a major event like this. Not only have we sponsored these events over the years, but MRIGlobal also has a long history of providing event judges and volunteers.
As this year’s Platinum Presenting Sponsor, we were proud to support this group that has given so much to the development of area students who are pursuing an interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), and the schools that are developing the brightest minds of tomorrow. We are always looking for scientists, engineers, and staff who are committed to purpose driven work and share our passion for making the world healthier, safer, and more sustainable. These students, with their impressive ideas and research, will hopefully help us continue our mission in the future.
Congratulations to all the students and winners of the 71st Annual Greater Kansas City Science and Engineering Fair! They deserve a large round of applause for their hard work and dedication to their projects, and we look forward to seeing them pursue careers in STEM fields.
