Forward Thinking Initiatives invites young innovators, ages 10-16 to an invention workshop to design an eco-friendly helicopter of the future as part of a national scholarship competition! Submitted designs will be evaluated by the Sikorsky Aircraft company and the grand prize winner will receive $1000 scholarship and a visit to Sikorsky headquarters to see how helicopters are made. Design submissions are due by October 15, 2015 and require a completed Parental Permission Form. No background or training is necessary to participate and a light lunch will be provided for registered participants.
The 5th Annual Helicopter 2050 Challenge is a part of Sikorsky’s commitment to encourage students’ hands-on learning in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and gives the corporation an opportunity to develop long-term relationships with tomorrow’s engineers.
