The DS2 Team gives back during the 2019 Earth Day Beach Clean-Up!
The DS2 Team was proud to be a part of this year's Earth Day Beach Clean-Up sponsored by the Boardwalk on Okaloosa Island. The event was a family-friendly event that included prizes for the most cigarette butts collected (who had to count those butts) and included informational sessions provided by the Choctawhatchee Basin Alliance.
We had a wonderful turnout and collected so much from the beaches. Another fabulous effort in partnership with United Way, Choctawhatchee Basin Alliance, and Florida's Emerald Coast, and funded by the S.E.A. Campaign.
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.
The DS2 Team was happy to support the 2019 IRONMAN Florida in Panama City Beach by volunteering to hand out water, Gatorade, and snacks to the participants.
DS2 is a proud supporter of the 2019 Congressional App Challenge (CAC) hosted by Congressman Matt Gaetz at the STEM/Cyber Security Expo held on the University of West Florida Pensacola Campus. DS2 travelled to the 2019 CAC, where DS2's Vice President Richard Pruitt participated as a volunteer judge.
DS2 attended the 2019 Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) in Orlando to learn more about the cutting edge of simulation and training technology.
The International Coastal Cleanup was held on September 21, 2019 and DS2 employees joined in the cleanup.
DS2 recently announced facility build-out has begun on a new DS2 facility located in Valparaiso, FL which includes 4,500 sq. ft. for offices and development labs. In addition, specialty development of R&D space will be added in the 1st quarter of 2019.
