Building Indiana Magazine reports that “Trine University has received a $3,000 grant from the Indiana Space Grant Consortium to support a student team” at AIAA’s Design/Build/Fly competition. The annual contest “provides a real-world aircraft design experience for engineering students by giving them the opportunity to validate their analytic studies.” Trine’s Research and Outreach Project grant, which “will help cover travel expenses and materials for building an aircraft,” is meant “to provide hands-on or project-based experience geared toward STEM...workforce development.” (Image: Participants ready their remote controlled aircraft at the 2018 Design/Build/Fly competition | AIAA)
