Chapter Supports Local UAV Program

The chapter has formed a great relationship with the local Stepping Up America Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) program. This is an exciting new aviation and robotics program for 9 to 14 year olds that promotes early interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics-related competencies. To support the program, the chapter co-sponsors mini-UAV competitions by providing judges and cash donations. Dr. Angela Goodloe, director of Stepping Up America, has been delighted with the support she has received from the chapter.
