Youth Summit on Technology

Bowie State University - Bowie, MD




General Information: The purpose of this project is to generate interest in the fields of avionics aeronautics and aviation. Students will gain an understanding of the skills involved in flight, not just from the piloting standpoint but the engineering and physics behind flying.  Students will be engaged in hands-on and conceptual perspectives by working with mentors and trainers who will instruct and inspire them to explore a variety of opportunities in these fields.


Programs: This competition is for middle and high school students.  Students will learn the concepts and career opportunities that are available in the aerospace industry.  They will also learn the fundamentals of flying as well as flight technology.  Students will share their knowledge and be judged for competency in flight including takeoff, developing and maintaining flight paths, safely landing, and overall aeronautical skills during the competition.  They will compete in a fly off to determine the winner, the students with the best skill wins.


School: This competition will be among middle and high school students.
