Inaugural STEM Outreach Program
December 1-3, 2015 | Marriott Marquis DC & Convention Center
The AOC recognizes the importance of educating students in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) using an interdisciplinary and applied approach.
2018 projections estimate the need for 8.65 million workers in STEM-related jobs.
The AOC will host a STEM Program in conjunction with the 52nd 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 potential future Crows 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.
