2nd Annual STEM Outreach Program
November 30-November 30, 2017 | DC Convention Center

The AOC recognizes the importance of educating students in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) 
using an interdisciplinary and applied approach.

The AOC will host a STEM Program in conjunction with the 53rd Annual AOC International Symposium and Convention. This program will focus on students interested in potential STEM careers. This program will feature engaging and informative presentations by an exclusive group of professionals who aim to empower and inspire students about careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Students will learn about the basic concepts Radio Frequency (RF) Spectrum (e.g. waveforms, amplitude, frequency, transmitters, receivers, antennas and more), the physics of radio and RADAR transmissions, and the concepts behind Cyber vulnerabilities and Cyber security through a series of interactive booths featuring technologies, equipment and platforms utilized today and planned for the future. Plans for our STEM program include hands-on interactive robot and unmanned air vehicle displays and aircraft simulators.

The STEM display area will be located adjacent to the main exhibit hall. For more information, please contact Karlene HemerlyFluck at
