Adventures in Engineering
Rescheduled to Wednesday, January 15, 2014 
.
Adventures in Engineering is an annual event sponsored by the Army Space and Missile Defense Association (ASMDA), NDIA, UAHuntsville, and Junior Achievement.  This year the event is being held on Wednesday, January 15, 2014 from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.  The purpose of this event is to allow 11th grade students to explore local careers in the fields of math, science, engineering, and technology (STEM).  This event is free to participating students and chaperones.
Transportation to and from UAHuntsville must be provided by a parent/guardian or school. Students must arrive at UAHuntsville between 6:45 AM and 7:30 AM on October 9, 2013
The day will begin at UAHuntsville where the students and their chaperone will load tour buses to travel to the base.  Participants will circulate throughout the day to various agencies and companies associated with the Arsenal, NASA, and defense industry.  Lunch will be provided as part of the day’s activities (if you have dietary restrictions, please plan to bring your own lunch). 
Schools are asked to encourage 11th grade students who might be interested in STEM to participate in this event.  Students are required to fill out a consent form and obtain permission from their parent/guardian to participate.  School counselors are asked to distribute and collect student consent forms.  Completed forms are only accepted from the school (not the student or parent directly unless home-schooled) and should be turned into Junior Achievement by September 18th.  Because many stops at the Arsenal dictate security requirements, only U.S. Citizens can participate in this event and a copy of the students/chaperones’ IDs must be included in registration.  
A teacher, counselor, or parent from your school will need to spend the day with your students as a chaperone.  Chaperones will be required to ride on the tour bus and remain with their students for the full day.  Chaperones will also be responsible for ensuring that their students are safely picked up at UAH after the event.  One chaperone per school will be allowed for every 25 students.  If you school requires a nurse to attend, that person counts one of the chaperones and needs to complete all paperwork by the deadline. Schools with more than 25 students participating in AIE may choose to assign one additional chaperone.  Each chaperone must be a U.S. citizen and complete a Chaperone Consent Form.
Last year the event reached maximum attendance before the deadline and this year we have a strict cut-off of 300 attendees, so early registration is highly encouraged.  Due to the limited number of spaces:

·              - Acceptance to the program is on a first-come, first accepted basis;

·              - Schools are limited to a maximum 1 bus load (46 students and 2 chaperones);

·              - Schools are limited to a minimum 4 students and 1 chaperone;

·              - NO substitutes after the deadline will be accepted. If any extra students arrive the day-of, they will be sent back to school, transported by parent/guardian/school official.
