Check out a few photos taken on one of Team DS2's favorite days to celebrate each year- May the 4th/Star Wars Day!
DS2 proudly sponsors and participates in the Hunger Run 5k, hosted by Bluewater Fitness, held on April 30, 2022. This year, the theme was “Sock it to Hunger”, encouraging race participants to wear wild and crazy socks in celebration.
DS2 proudly sponsored this year’s Technology Coast Manufacturing and Engineering Network (TeCMen) Industry Day 2022, held on April 26 at the Destin Fort Walton Beach Convention Center. This annual event hosted by One Okaloosa Economic Development Council (EDC) is the Gulf Coast’s leading, one-day technology, engineering, and manufacturing expo.
Each Earth Day, Team DS2 gets together to clean a section of our local beaches. This year, our volunteers participated in a beach clean-up event hosted by Friends of South Walton Sea Turtles which took place in Destin, FL where our volunteers combed the shoreline filling trash bags with litter left on our beaches and tangled in the dunes
Another great company outing for the books! DS2 and family participated in the Son of a Beach 5k benefitting the Special Operations Warrior Foundation in memory of the crew of RATCHET 33.
DS2 attends the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) 2021, the world’s largest modeling, simulation, and training event.
DS2 proudly sponsored the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA)’s 47th Air Armament Symposium held from November 2-3 at the Destin-Ft. Walton Beach Convention Center. The annual interchange brings senior DoD, Service and industry leadership together to discuss DoD’s armament development and modernization, featuring nationally recognized speakers from DoD, Air Force, Army, SOF, and Navy Senior Leadership. DS2 is pleased to be apart of such a worthwhile industry event.
Every year, DS2 participates in a Fall beach cleanup to remove litter from our beautiful sugar-sand beaches and say goodbye to Summer! This year, we packed up our trash bags, trash grabbers, buckets, & gloves and headed to the Boardwalk on Okaloosa Island. DS2 volunteers soaked up some sun while removing an entire trashcan’s worth of rubbish from the shoreline.
DS2 geared up for STEM education this past Saturday by hosting a Game Changers event with the HSU Educational Foundation. The Game Changers is a program that provides interactive, shared science and technology events for local families to inspire and encourage critical thinking and problem solving within the STEM community. Business and educational opportunities such as these sparks conversations among family members and provides an avenue for participants to apply educational principles to real world applications. DS2 was proud to take part in an event this year for the chance to excite kids about the wonderful world of programming! With the help of DS2 team members, Game-changers experienced hands-on activities learning about robotics, the Unity game engine, VR, and Android development.
DS2 proudly sponsored TecMEN for this year’s TecMEN Industry Day, an event dedicated to discussing technology, networking with fellow industries, and promoting economic growth in the Panhandle. This event featured both local and national businesses with speaker symposiums to foster communication, growth, and advancement within our local technology-based community. Workshops highlighted topics on Cultivating Talents Through Apprenticeships and Understanding Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC), and proceeds from the function supported the Economic Development Council of Okaloosa County.
