The Fundamental Aeronautics Program has announced its new competitions for the academic year. Students from high school grades through graduate school are invited to research and design an amphibious tiltrotor vehicle with civilian applications. The competition has two divisions: High School and College/University. Teams or individuals may enter either contest, and the program encourages interdisciplinary partnerships.
High school participants must be enrolled in an accredited high school, secondary school or home school. For the high school division, the deadline for final projects has been extended to March 15, 2010.
Undergraduate and graduate participants must be enrolled in an accredited college or university. For the college and university division, the deadline for final papers has been extended to May 10, 2010.
International students may participate, but they are not eligible for certain prizes.
