AeroSTEM Expo

Chicago area students age 12 and up are invited to the third annual AeroStar Youth Aviation STEM Expo on Saturday, March 30, 2019, from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. in Hermann Hall, 3241 South Federal Street, on Illinois Institute of Technology’s Main Campus.

The expo is a FREE event that introduces inner-city youth to the aviation and aerospace fields and mentors career aspirations that may ultimately lead to well-paying, satisfying careers in flight and aerospace. Participants will interact with flight simulators, mini-drones, and robots. Additionally, industry professionals will provide one-on-one mentoring opportunities.

After the Expo, join us for a powerful luncheon. Our keynote: Mrs. Charity Ikpe, Founder and CEO of Engineers in Heels Global. Mrs. Ikpe is a former NASA Engineer and current Boeing FA-18 Structural Engineer. She will share her story of how she went from NASA to Cupcakes to Boeing’s FA-18 Engineering team. Tickets are available for purchase.
