STEM+C Taking Flight Event

April 9 @ 10:00 am - 8:00 pm

Taking Flight is a daylong immersive experience in aviation, aeronautics, aerospace, robotics, and is a STEM focused event. It is designed to engage students (students for the purpose of this event can be anyone of any age who wants to have fun while learning) in RC Airplane Flying, RC Multi-Rotor flying, Rocketry, and RC Cars and Trucks. The event demonstrates the STEM applicability of all these “Hobbies”. At Taking Flight, students will have the opportunity to “Buddy Box” with an instructor and fly a trainer RC Airplane, or a Multi-rotor vehicle. Students have the opportunity to build and fly small model rockets with the help of our model rocketry volunteers. They will learn about many different STEM enrichment programs from all over the valley (TARC, UAS4STEM, First Lego League, etc). We invite schools from around the valley to showcase their engineering, aviation, aerospace, and robotics programs. We invite companies from around the valley to talk with students about career choices in the applicable fields.
