Greetings Unmanned Systems Professionals,
Science Fair Season is upon us and judging has commenced. I attended the West Panhandle Science and Engineering Fair on Monday evening and found two very thorough and relevant projects to receive our iTunes awards plus 6 other well executed projects that were also relevant to unmanned systems. We will be scheduling our next chapter membership meeting this spring to include the presentation of the ECC-AUVSI award to the top regional science fair project that relates to unmanned systems.
In 2 weeks, the Escambia County School District will be holding an Aviation Career Fair at Ferguson Airport in west Pensacola on the morning of Tuesday, 7 FEB 17. They are looking for UAV operators to attend, demonstrate and speak to the high school students about career opportunities in unmanned systems. I hope a few of our chapter members would be able to participate in this event. It will start around 0830 at the airfield and finish around 1100.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would be interested in participating.
