Students participating in the AOC Muddy Watters STEM Program took a special trip to AOC 2023, bringing their robots, introducing their program to AOC Chapter Presidents, and speaking at the Young Crow exchange. On display were examples of a few Chapters’ STEM events that other Chapters could view, ask questions, and get support. The purpose of this event was to have more AOC Chapters involved in helping our “future workforce” get introduced and excited by a career involving the Electro-Magnetic Spectrum (EMS) early by having AOC Chapters involved with STEM in their local community.
Chapter STEM demonstrations were available all day on Tuesday upstairs in Chesapeake 6. The event was supported by Chapters and others from the following areas: Capitol Club, Dixie Crow, Point Mugu Crows, DC First Robotics (IEEE), AOC HQ (STEM Learning Stations), and RF Instrumentation support from Rohde & Schwarz America.
