9th Annual AFRL Challenge CompetitionApr 17, 2017 to Apr 21, 2017 Location: Griffiss Institute, 725 Daedalian Drive, Rome NY
The Challenge Competition is an annual STEM initiative for local high school students. Each participating high school can send one team which consists of two students, ages 16 years or older and a teacher coach/mentor. The competition is held during Spring Break. The intent of the competition is to provide a more realistic view into the types of high tech problems our nation is facing and how researchers go about dissecting and solving these complex challenges. Participating in this competition provides students a new perspective in the field of engineering, science, and or math depending on the problems’ origin, and an opportunity to compete for paid summer internships at AFRL/RI and local companies.
