    Did anyone from NE AIAA attend Ascend? Was wondering what people's thoughts and takeaways were.

    Hi Brady,
    I wanted to attend but I was not able to do it.  I signed up for some talks before Ascend but nothing after that.  By the way my name is Endri and I am the STEM K-12 Officer for the New England section of the AIAA.  We are recruiting K-12 STEM teachers and administrators to support science, technology, engineering and mathematics, STEM, and increase the number of Educator Associates in the Section.

    Brady,

    Following up on Endri's email,  two files are attached.  They are up to date but meant for non-AIAA STEM teachers and administrators.

    Here are a couple of STEM-related activities.

    1. We are offering our Educator Associates a $250 grant to purchase STEM supplies and equipment.
    2. In the last month we have begun to build Aerospace Robotics Competition of high school science teams in the Section. There is lots more information available if you are interested.  There may be a chance to begin the process by suppling interested schools with a Tello minidrone which can be easily controlled using DroneBlocks as a way learn the basics.
    Plese let me know if I can be of more assistance.

    On December 15th we will host a zoom with Skai corp, skai.co, on their hydrogen-fueled electric helicoper which can carry 5.  They located in Hopkington.
