2020 Virtual SAE AeroConnect Challenge™ Updates

The 2020 SAE AeroConnect Challenge™ Virtual event will take place in two parts:

1. Oral Presentations – scheduled out and hosted on a WebEx May 1, 2020. The presentations will take place on a separate day from the rest of the larger virtual event.

2. Virtual Event Day – SAE AeroConnect Challenge™ will be joining SAE Aero Design West larger Virtual Event. The event day will consist of the career fair, sponsor skillshops, expert chats and more. We are also planning to work gamification into this event for students to compete against each other for prizes. The date is still TBD at this time based on our continued exploration on finding the right platform. We will communicate the date once established on the newsfeed at www.saeaeroconnectchallenge.com/go/news

Written Design Reports:
Design reports have been reviewed and scored by our dedicated SAE AeroConnect Rules Committee.

Oral Presentations:
Oral Presentations will be judged and scored by high quality industry judges from across the United States. These presentations will take place on a virtual platform on May 1, 2020 from 12:00 P.M. – 5:00 P.M. Each team will have an hour time slot to present and answer questions and answers. We will share a schedule of the oral presentation times on Series Resources and the newsfeed. We will send a Webex appointment to each team once they are finalized. The presentations will take place on a separate day from the rest of the larger virtual event.

We will continue to update students on a weekly basis every Tuesday. Thank you for your continued support. Stay healthy everyone!
