Hyatt Regency Orlando, Orlando, Florida, USA


Idea Challenge participants at the 2023 AIAA SciTech Forum

Now in its fifth year, the AIAA Idea Challenge at AIAA SciTech Forum continues to provide young professionals the opportunity to collaborate, develop ideas, and present during a Forum 360 session. This year’s event will focus on giving a voice to the young generation of AIAA leaders, enabling them to share their thoughts and perspectives concerning important issues in the aerospace industry.  

Idea Challenge participants will be asked to meet on Sunday, 7 January, to brainstorm and share their ideas. At the close of that meeting, teams will be formed around the collective interests. During the week of AIAA SciTech Forum, teams will develop a pitch on a fundamental issue of importance that the aerospace industry must address. They will participate in a workshop where they form and refine their proposal using the proven methods of value creation developed by Curt Carlson. In addition, they will have the opportunity to meet with mentors to perfect their presentation. Teams will present in the afternoon Forum 360 session on Thursday, 11 January.

In addition to the collaboration, mentoring, and professional development opportunities mentioned above, Idea Challenge members will receive complimentary registration for the 2024 AIAA SciTech Forum.  

There are a limited number of participants that will be accepted for this year’s Idea Challenge. To confirm your place, please email
