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.
