InnovateAFITC Takes Collaboration to the Next Level

In August, the chapter co-sponsored a regional STEM and cyber collaboration competition called InnovateAFITC with TechMGM and the U.S. Air Force Chief Information Officer's office. The competition drew 74 participants that included students, information technology professionals and airmen with related career backgrounds in network communications, cybersecurity, software development and STEM. Students paired up with service members and industry professionals on 11 teams. The diverse, multiskilled teams selected one of four cyber challenges to create a solution. Teams were judged on their prototype submission, technical writing and pitch presentation. This event helps create a community culture of cyber innovation and collaboration by focusing on work force development and encouraging innovation on smart city initiatives.
