The AFRL Challenge Competition is an annual STEM initiative for local high school students. 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 problem's origin. There can only be one team from each participating high school; two students, ages 16 years or older, and a one teacher/coach/mentor. The competition is held during Spring Break.

Teams to be announced soon!
