Community Outreach: ACE SHPE Junior LM Industry Day Recap

posted Jun 25, 2017, 3:41 PM by Roberto Olono
On May 16, SHPE LM Aero held their last CO event of the current SHPE year. We exceeded our overall strategic CO goals! Another SHPE National Pre-College 4-2-1 program "Get Out and STEM" event in the books with our annual ACE Junior LM Industry Day series in collaboration with Fort Worth Trimble Tech HS SHPE Jr. and Brewer Middle School Lego Lab program students. This is our 6th annual event. We had 38 students in attendance for the meeting in the LM AVC Innovation Room.

Thanks to all the volunteers that helped make it happen and to the entire 2016-2017 SHPE LM Aero CO Board on a successful year. Our students had the opportunity to learn about the corporation from a senior manager keynote speaker, see the world-class F-35 manufacturing line, hone their piloting skills in the F-35 cockpit simulator, and practice their design skills in a team competition building their very own Brizzle Bot Robot Bugs STEM activity. Some raffle prizes were provided to individuals that demonstrated their knowledge in STEM trivia based on what they learned during the tour and other workshops and speakers during the day.
