U.S. Olympic Diver Tells Tampa School Students Math, Science A Winning Combination

The STEM career assembly was hosted at Faith Outreach Academy, a school that participates in the Step Up scholarship program. Step Up For Students is the nonprofit organization that administers the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship Program, and awards K-12 scholarships to low-income Florida families at more than 1,300 schools across the state. The program is funded by corporate tax redirections from organizations like DeVry. Step Up For Students has awarded more than 50,000 scholarships this year to Florida students, 98 of whom attend Faith Outreach Academy.

“We are proud to partner with DeVry to ensure our children have access to the tools they need to create a bright and successful future,” said Doug Tuthill, president of Step Up For Students. “We are grateful that DeVry is supporting our scholarship program, while also taking the initiative to help the students of today become the scientists, researchers, technology developers, astronauts and engineers of tomorrow. It is wonderful to see a company giving back in this way.”

During the STEM career assembly, Friday, Feb. 15, Colwill shared his experiences from the London 2012 Olympic Games, details about his rigorous training schedule, and how science and technology helped make his success possible.

“To have a perfect dive, you have to have a lot of things go right before and after you leave the diving platform,” Colwill said. “We are measuring vertical and horizontal velocity, as well as rotation – the actual physics of a perfect dive.”
