This high-tech research facility will house the next wave of technology development focused around Sensor Technology. This collaboration is estimated to bring 10,000 jobs over the next 10 years to Osceola.

This campus will train the next wave of workers for the BRIDG at NeoCity FL and prepare students for high paying jobs close to home. Additionally, thinking of our children, Osceola donated land next to the BRIDG facility to the School District for the creation of an advanced STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) High School.
