At work, the inductor measures the exact size and scale thickness of a human hair, but the NASA-patented sensor tech nology itself totals the size of a tabletop. In December, a group of four Rollins College MBA students presented to NASA a black and blue lunch-box-sized cardboard box with the same measuring sensor shrunk down to postagestamp size and packaged inside. Its the same technology, only smaller, better-packaged and more commercialized, student Jason Goldberg said. Instead of only detecting space shuttle cracks, this ver sion, he said, has the potential to increase the precision of 3D printing, help with miniscule measurements in Department of Defense projects, and with surgeons in the operating room make highly precise incisions. We were given a few months to provide a marketing plan to mercial viability for using the sensor outside of the shuttle pro gram, which is what it was origi nally developed for, Goldberg said. And what we did was be Following news that LYNX no longer plans to assist partner cit ies through the implementation phase of FlexBus, Maitland city on reevaluating how to move the system forward. Plans for the intelligent transit systems demonstration phase lowing word from LYNX that the bus system had no plans to help implement FlexBus past helping develop its technology. This, Maitland Mayor Howard Schieferdecker said, has forced the cities Maitland, Altamonte Springs, Longwood and Casselberry to reevaluate its future. I still think were kind of in shock. We have to reevaluate the whole situation We have to re group and decide what were go ing to do, Schieferdecker said. That feeling persisted after the mayors and members of staff from each of the cities met with LYNX CEO John Lewis Tuesday after having received a followup letter detailing LYNXs con cerns with FlexBus April 3. Its become readily apparent that they have shifted directions into a different focus than we had, Community Development Director Dick Wells said. This misunderstanding, according to the cities, comes into play over it being previously im plied in agreements that LYNX would oversee the operator of the system and help apply for federal grant money to fuel the buses after the demonstration phase set to start later this year. The Florida High School Ath letic Association took another hit on April 9 as the Florida House Education Committee passed House Bill 1279. The bill includes said would make illegal recruiting between high schools easier to hide and lead to an unfair bal ance in competition. Legislators argued that it will help keep the FHSAAs power in check. The amount of power they have is just unbounded, Rep. Elizabeth Porter, R-Lake City, said. There have been a number of occasions of them really over stepping their boundaries. Home searches that seek to verify whether or not a student lives in the residency shown on his or her school records would no longer be allowed; while simulta neously investigations into those Please see FHSAA on page 6 Bill to strip FHSAAs power proceedsCouncil sworn in STEVEN BARNHART Observer Staff PHOTOS BY SARAH WILSON THE OBSERVERJoy Goff-Marcil takes the oath of ofce, above, at the swearingin ceremony for the newest Maitland City Council on April 8.

Page 2 yond putting together a market ing plan, what we decided to do was prototype and package the sensor technology. A Space Act Agreement signed last fall between NASA and Rol lins gave Goldberg, two of his classmates and two professors the opportunity to take their choice from patent-pending NASAdeveloped technologies to try to commercialize and develop, mand for it in other markets. Rollins professor Peter McAlin don chose the non-contact inductive sensor and let his students take the lead, spending the semes ter taking the technology from large and overbearing to small and compact. If you cant take something in a patent that NASA developed for cation and reduce it what some one else can understand, youre going to have a hard time selling it the students did a great job at that, McAlindon said. Jim Nichols, who manages licensing for NASA, said they sought out the partnership with Rollins because of its nearby loca tion and well-respected business school. We thought the idea really Rollins gets experience hands on with technology, we get the ben cial potential. By the end of the semester, the students came up with targeted markets, from medical to automotive, for the sensor, and a pack aged prototype and sales pitch for from use of the technology. Its great because you get to deal with real business cases, you get to deal with things that are really happening and have a real implication. Its not a case study where theres a right or wrong an swer and you get a grade, you ac tually see the fruits of your labor making a difference, Goldberg said. The success of the groups de velopment of the sensor led the classmates to continue their work outside of the classroom, creat ing their own commercialization company called Juntura Group juntura meaning a joint or con nection in Spanish. Connecting innovation to industry, became a principle they learned through the sensor project. The students are now work ing with NASA to co-license the sensor technology to Juntura to continue their research of its mar ket viability. McAlindon said he hopes students next fall will be able to continue work on the sensor through the ongoing Space Act Agreement and as possible Juntura Group interns. With them pushing in that groups willingness to help the new group coming in, you can imagine the continuity and the learning that can happen through all these wonderful things, McAlindon said. To have the students so engaged with all of this, and then form a company after that, its just really, really exciting. To me, thats really what education is all about.

This 501(c)3 non-profitable charitable organization provides seven main-stage theatre productions per year and monthly cabarets that have consistently sold out. Opening in 2002 as a small theatre in the back of a performing arts school, The Winter Park Playhouse has broadened their audience base from 2,000 patrons the first year, to over 12,000 patrons in 2012. The Winter Park Playhouse employs an estimated 68 actors, musicians and technicians along with an average of 50 to 75 volunteers, including their Board of Directors. They are the only professional musical theatre in central Florida, and one of the few left in the state.They are a member of the Winter Park Chamber of Commerce and Park Avenue Merchants Association, as well as partner with local Winter Park restaurants for everyproduction. Aside from their proven track record, The Winter Park Playhouse has taken professional, educational musical theatre into Title I elementary schools throughout the four-county area through their outreach program, R.E.A.C.H.

The bill would also place the ly on the shoulders of the FHSAA Rep. Larry Metz, R-Yalaha, the legislator who proposed the bill, had suggested in previous state ments that this would level the and parents and students. If the bill is made into a law, students would be allowed to par ticipate at another public school in an extracurricular activity if their school does not offer it. Additionally, a student will not automati cally be ruled ineligible if they participate on a summer league team and then play for that coach in school the following year. Even after evidence is collected by the FHSAA, the case has to be presented to an administrative on a students eligibility. FHSAA executive director Dr. Roger Dearing had said publicly in the past that this bill would not only undermine the Associations ability to enforce the rules, but conjointly students could play a sport in one school while playing a different sport at another. One local coach said that this bill would not only have an effect on student-athletes, but coaches as well. I think it would make it dif a player doesnt like how much time theyre [playing at a school] then they might be out of there High School varsity basketball head coach Billy Owens. [The bill] would give all of the authority back to the players. If a guy, for example, isnt getting enough shots he may go over to another school just because he thinks hell get more shots. Another coach isnt as con cerned with the effects the bill could have on an athletes ability to transfer, but on the students themselves. If youre shopping your kid around because of athletics its not best for their overall development. I dont support recruiting, said Scott Gomrad, head coach of Winter Springs varsity wrestling. As long as youre running your program the right way and helping them grow, parents [will] see their growth and develop ment. Winter Springs lost two-time state champion wrestler Brandon Hatchett to a transfer to Oviedo High School in 2006. Oviedo was later sanctioned by the FHSAA and banned from postseason com petition for three years for ille gally transferring athletes into the school by falsifying addresses and having them live with coaches. Gomrad said that while some parents and students think that going to another school solves all of their problems, he warns that it could do even further damage to the student. If that bill passes and kids are moving around, it doesnt always tures, added Gomrad. [If you] treat them like professional ath letes they miss out on the point of high school athletics, which is to Though the bill has built up some legislative momentum, it will need to pass through the Florida House of Representatives and Senate before it can be signed by Gov. Rick Scott. FHSAA | Bill would force FHSAA to pay for its investigations into recruiting violations, rather than schools CONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE

At work, the inductor mea sures the exact size and scale thickness of a human hair, but the NASA-patented sensor tech nology itself totals the size of a tabletop. In December, a group of four Rollins College MBA students presented to NASA a black and blue lunch-box-sized cardboard box with the same measuring sensor shrunk down to postagestamp size and packaged inside. Its the same technology, only smaller, better-packaged and more commercialized, student Jason Goldberg said. Instead of only detecting space shuttle cracks, this ver sion, he said, has the potential to increase the precision of 3D printing, help with miniscule measurements in Department of Defense projects, and with surgeons in the operating room make highly precise incisions. We were given a few months to provide a marketing plan to mercial viability for using the sensor outside of the shuttle pro gram, which is what it was origi nally developed for, Goldberg said. And what we did was be Following news that LYNX no longer plans to assist partner cit ies through the implementation phase of FlexBus, Maitland city on reevaluating how to move the system forward. Plans for the intelligent transit systems demonstration phase lowing word from LYNX that the bus system had no plans to help implement FlexBus past helping develop its technology. This, Maitland Mayor Howard Schieferdecker said, has forced the cities Maitland, Altamonte Springs, Longwood and Cassel berry to reevaluate its future. I still think were kind of in shock. We have to reevaluate the whole situation We have to re group and decide what were go ing to do, Schieferdecker said. That feeling persisted after the mayors and members of staff from each of the cities met with LYNX CEO John Lewis Tuesday after having received a followup letter detailing LYNXs con cerns with FlexBus April 3. Its become readily apparent that they have shifted directions into a different focus than we had, Community Development Director Dick Wells said. This misunderstanding, ac cording to the cities, comes into play over it being previously im plied in agreements that LYNX would oversee the operator of the system and help apply for federal grant money to fuel the buses after the demonstration phase set to start later this year. The Florida High School Ath letic Association took another hit on April 9 as the Florida House Education Committee passed House Bill 1279. The bill includes said would make illegal recruit ing between high schools easier to hide and lead to an unfair bal ance in competition. Legislators argued that it will help keep the FHSAAs power in check. The amount of power they have is just unbounded, Rep. Elizabeth Porter, R-Lake City, said. There have been a number of occasions of them really over stepping their boundaries.

Page 2 yond putting together a market ing plan, what we decided to do was prototype and package the sensor technology. A Space Act Agreement signed last fall between NASA and Rol lins gave Goldberg, two of his classmates and two professors the opportunity to take their choice from patent-pending NASAdeveloped technologies to try to commercialize and develop, mand for it in other markets. Rollins professor Peter McAlin don chose the non-contact induc tive sensor and let his students take the lead, spending the semes ter taking the technology from large and overbearing to small and compact. If you cant take something in a patent that NASA developed for cation and reduce it what some one else can understand, youre going to have a hard time selling it the students did a great job at that, McAlindon said. Jim Nichols, who manages licensing for NASA, said they sought out the partnership with Rollins because of its nearby loca tion and well-respected business school. We thought the idea really Rollins gets experience hands on with technology, we get the ben cial potential. By the end of the semester, the students came up with targeted markets, from medical to automo tive, for the sensor, and a pack aged prototype and sales pitch for from use of the technology. Its great because you get to deal with real business cases, you get to deal with things that are really happening and have a real implication. Its not a case study where theres a right or wrong an swer and you get a grade, you ac tually see the fruits of your labor making a difference, Goldberg said. The success of the groups de velopment of the sensor led the classmates to continue their work outside of the classroom, creat ing their own commercialization company called Juntura Group juntura meaning a joint or con nection in Spanish. Connecting innovation to industry, became a principle they learned through the sensor project. The students are now work ing with NASA to co-license the sensor technology to Juntura to continue their research of its mar ket viability. McAlindon said he hopes students next fall will be able to continue work on the sen sor through the ongoing Space Act Agreement and as possible Juntura Group interns. With them pushing in that groups willingness to help the new group coming in, you can imagine the continuity and the learning that can happen through all these wonderful things, McAlindon said. To have the students so engaged with all of this, and then form a company after that, its just really, really exciting. To me, thats really what education is all about.

The bill would also place the ly on the shoulders of the FHSAA Rep. Larry Metz, R-Yalaha, the legislator who proposed the bill, had suggested in previous state ments that this would level the and parents and students. If the bill is made into a law, students would be allowed to par ticipate at another public school in an extracurricular activity if their school does not offer it. Addition ally, a student will not automati cally be ruled ineligible if they participate on a summer league team and then play for that coach in school the following year. Even after evidence is collected by the FHSAA, the case has to be presented to an administrative on a students eligibility. FHSAA executive director Dr. Roger Dearing had said publicly in the past that this bill would not only undermine the Associations ability to enforce the rules, but conjointly students could play a sport in one school while playing a different sport at another. One local coach said that this bill would not only have an effect on student-athletes, but coaches as well. I think it would make it dif a player doesnt like how much time theyre [playing at a school] then they might be out of there High School varsity basketball head coach Billy Owens. [The bill] would give all of the authority back to the players. If a guy, for example, isnt getting enough shots he may go over to another school just because he thinks hell get more shots. Another coach isnt as con cerned with the effects the bill could have on an athletes ability to transfer, but on the students themselves. If youre shopping your kid around because of athletics its not best for their overall develop ment. I dont support recruiting, said Scott Gomrad, head coach of Winter Springs varsity wrestling. As long as youre running your program the right way and helping them grow, parents [will] see their growth and develop ment. Winter Springs lost two-time state champion wrestler Brandon Hatchett to a transfer to Oviedo High School in 2006. Oviedo was later sanctioned by the FHSAA and banned from postseason com petition for three years for ille gally transferring athletes into the school by falsifying addresses and having them live with coaches. Gomrad said that while some parents and students think that going to another school solves all of their problems, he warns that it could do even further damage to the student. If that bill passes and kids are moving around, it doesnt always tures, added Gomrad. [If you] treat them like professional ath letes they miss out on the point of high school athletics, which is to Though the bill has built up some legislative momentum, it will need to pass through the Florida House of Representatives and Senate before it can be signed by Gov.
