Announcing the 2021 UAS4STEM National Competition Winners, Plus Big News for 2022
On Thursday July 29 and Friday July 30, students from across the US came together for the UAS4STEM national competition at AirVenture in Oshkosh WI. The student teams built their own drones and competed in various flying challenges for a shot at the national title. The challenge is designed to encourage students to learn about small unmanned aircraft systems through teamwork, competition, and success through STEM. The 2021 UAS4STEM first-place finishers were Some Assembly Required of Rockville MD, second-place finishers McIntosh Aeronautics of Peachtree City GA, and third-place finishers Creekview HS Aeronautics of Canton GA.
The Dewey O. Broberg Jr. Scholarship was awarded by competition judges to recognize a student who showed dedication to his or her team, determination, and adherence to the rules and purpose of the competition. Congratulations to Michael Pena of Canton GA, the recipient of the 2021 Dewey O. Broberg Jr. Scholarship.
UAS4STEM Goes International in 2022!
UAS4STEM has provided an exciting competition to students from across the nation since its inception, but the need for STEM programming doesn’t stop at our border. As the global leader in all things model aviation, the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) is proud to announce the UAS4STEM expansion to an international field of competition for the 2022 season. Registration opens September 1, with a virtual preliminary competition to be held in April, from which top-scoring teams will be invited to the national competition next summer.
