USAFA SAME STEM Camp Applications Open

Pikes Peak Post member (and former Little Rock Post) James Hodges selected as the new Camp Director.

SAME National recently selected James Hodges, P.E., Colonel, USAF (Retired), of the Pikes Peak Post to be the next Director of the STEM Engineering & Construction Camp at U.S. Air Force Academy. In partnership with the Academy Faculty’s Department of Civil Engineering, the camp will be June 23-29 and offers high school students interested in a highly unique STEM experience the chance to spend a week at the Air Force Academy learning engineering, construction, and design, while developing leadership skills and discovering the potential of a career in STEM. Over the past 20+ years, the camp has focused on practical, project-based learning that provides hands-on opportunities to explore STEM fields and to chart a course for future education and career opportunities. The camp features an impressive record of producing thousands of engineers and STEM leaders. It provides a rigorous experience for students interested in exploring STEM skills and careers. During the week, campers gain a sense of what it takes to become a STEM professional and learn what options exist to explore that interest from high school to college and beyond. The camp has a unique curriculum that features hands-on activities conducted in competitive environments at the Academy promoting teamwork, leadership, project management, and problem-solving. See the following link for more information about the camp and other SAME STEM camps around the nation:

The Society of American Military Engineers is the only nonprofit professional engineering education organization that actively promotes the advancement of both individual technical knowledge and the collective engineering capabilities of governments, the uniformed services and private industry.

Our goal is to unite public and private sector entities and individuals in the A/E/C fields so that we can prepare for and overcome natural and man made disasters, acts of terrorism and improve security at home and abroad.

The Arkansas Post accomplishes this goal locally by supporting monthly luncheon meetings and other professional/social activities attended by members of local government, military, private industry, students and other interested parties. These meetings are announced via our e-mail distribution list and quarterly newsletter. We are supported by the national Society of American Military Engineers and publications such as The Military Engineer, which also promotes the interests and goals of our society and its members. Please peruse our website to discover the benefits of SAME Arkansas Post membership.
