AIAA Generation STEM: Discovering Aerospace through Experience

AIAA held their first Generation STEM event and Intelligent Light is proud to have supported this special program at its launch.  Generation STEM is an education outreach program anchored by a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math fair.  Nearly 350 students from middle schools (6th through 8th grade) in the Los Angeles area came to the event and spent a few hours exploring and observingreal-world phenomena, participating in design projects, exploring engineering, astronomy and chemistry.  The experiences and discussions provided a glimpse of what is happening in science and engineering today and offered an invitation to a future in technical disciplines.

AIAA’s Generation STEM event is unique in that it is an outreach from the aerospace industry directly to the students.  This personal connection created a great deal of enthusiasm among the students and gave many a glimpse into a future in aerospace that they can believe in.  The explorations, experiments and projects were immediately relevant to them.

Students were engaged by a large complex of hands-on explorations, mini-design challenges, demonstrations and special speakers lead by Dr. Sandy Magnus, a NASA astronaut and now AIAA Executive Director.  Additional speakers included young engineering professionals and students who described the motivations, educational paths and skills they had developed that were important to their success.

Intelligent Light, a longtime corporate partner of AIAA, engaged students in large numbers through a station co-presented by NASA that introduced some basics of observing and understanding fluid mechanics via Bernoulli’s Principle.  Students were directly involved in hands-on fluid flow experiments, wind tunnel demonstrations that allowed airflow to be seen and explored and were introduced to the use of CFD simulation with powerful visualizations that illuminated fluid flows in ways the students had never before been able to observe.  We had energetic discussions about the skills of observation, importance of understanding, need for analytical methods, engineering intuition and places to observe the effects of fluid flows in the day to day world around us.  Students learned that their real-life observations and understanding would power their ability to discern “correct” presentations of behaviors and create ideas for advancing discovery and design.

Intelligent Light Proudly Supporting Aerospace Fluid Science Summer School 2015 in Japan

From August 2nd to 4th, Aerospace Fluid Science Summer School 2015 was held at Yugawara, Kanagawa, Japan. A total of 47 participants, both students and professors, came from 11 universities and organizations, including Aichi Institute of Technology, University of Electro-Communications, Nagoya Univ., Nihon Univ., Ochanomizu Univ., Tohoku Univ., Tokyo Univ., The Tokyo Metropolitan Univ., Tottori Univ and JAXA.

This event was different from regular conferences. The presentations were brief and students were given more time to discuss the work rather than just presenting it. They also were able to get advice from different perspectives to improve both their research and their presentation abilities. Many ideas were generated that students will pursue back at their home laboratories. With three days together, the students developed relationships and friendships that will continue as they complete their studies and begin their careers.

This is an event that began informally with a group of about 10 students and has grown consistently since its inception. We were glad to help the students by supporting this event and are looking forward to participating again next year.

Intelligent Lightは2015年航空宇宙流体科学サマースクールを応援します

 8月2日から4日にかけて神奈川県足柄群湯河原町において航空宇宙流体科学サマースクールが開催され、11の組織より47名の学生 及び先生方が出席なされました。参加していただいた大学及び研究機関は愛知工業大学、宇宙航空研究開発機構(JAXA)、お茶の水大学、首都大学東京、電 気通信大学、東京大学、東北大学、鳥取大学、名古屋大学及び日本大学になります。(あいうえお順)

本サマースクールは従来の研究 発表の場である学会とは異なり、自分たちの研究について議論する事に重きをおいた会となりました。ここで発表することにより別の組織の方々から異なった視 点でのアドバイスを頂き、研究をより良いものにするアイディアをうむことができました。また、今後行う学会や論文審査での発表に向けたよい練習の場にもな りました。3日間をともに過ごすことにより、あまり触れあうことのない他大学との横のつながりができ、今後研究を行う上でよい関係を築けたかと思います。

 本イベントは元々10人程度で開始され、年々参加人数が増え続け現在に至ります。弊社はこのイベントの開催に協力する事により、学生さん達の研究生活のお役に立つことが出来とても嬉しく思っております。そしてまた、来年もご協力できればと考えております。

Pre-event post (22-Aug):

Students from all over Japan who are pursuing Masters and Ph. D degrees in fluid dynamics will get together from August 2-4, 2015 at Yugawara, Kanagawa-ken to share their work. Unlike conferences, the purpose of the gathering is to conduct detailed discussions of their work and get advice from the students and professors from outside of their universities.  Intelligent Light will help students to conduct higher level research by supporting this event.

8月2日から4日に神奈川県湯河原町にて行われる2015年航空宇宙流体科学サマースクールの開催に弊社は協力させて頂きます。本サマースクールは日本国 内の多くの流体を専門とする修士及び博士学生が参加し、自身の研究発表および意見交換を行う場となっています。学生達がよりよい研究をよりよい環境で行え る様、支援する方針です。
