The SBB Research Group Foundation has named Andre Borde a STEM Scholarship recipient

The SBB Research Group Foundation named Andre Borde as a recipient of its STEM scholarship. The $2,500 award empowers students to create value for society by pursuing higher learning through interdisciplinary combinations of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).

Andre, a sophomore, studies Engineering – Computer Science and Business Administration at the University of Michigan. He studied Robot Operating Systems and was an assistant in a robotics lab at Khlaifa University in Abu Dhabi. Andre currently seeks a patent and licensing agreement for a proprietary technology that captures obsolete small satellites in low-Earth orbit.

“We want to award students who demonstrate diligence to achieve something outstanding. Andre exemplifies this by creating new technology so early in his career," said Matt Aven, co-founder and board member of SBB Research Group Foundation.
