Chapter Supports STEM Efforts

November was a great month for the chapterís science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) efforts. Thanks to corporate sponsors Booz Allen Hamilton, Spectrum and BOSH Global Services, the chapter distributed more than $10,000 to local schools to meet classroom demands in the STEM areas. Dr. Albert Mitchum Jr., the political adviser to the commander of Air Combat Command, was the guest speaker for the luncheon and presented a captivating presentation on the impacts globalization, polarization and international power shifts will have on future military operations. Joyce Kuberek, Tabb High School chemistry teacher and the recipient of the chapter's 2012/2013 Teaching Tool Award, attended the luncheon along with one of her students, Nick Anselmo. They shared information about an AFCEA-funded STEM project that involved purchasing a weather balloon for students to learn how to launch, retrieve and perform data collection.
