This year's theme centers on the James Webb Space Telescope, to celebrate its forthcoming launch. The event will include speeches from inspiring women leaders in the aerospace industry, several panels, aerospace laboratory tours, and an engineering organization informational fair. The students will also work in teams on a mission design competition, judged by current engineers and scientists (All ages are welcome, but please be aware that the activity will touch on algebra and geometry concepts). A pizza lunch will be provided to all participants, and each student will receive a t-shirt.

Please be aware that every student MUST have a parent chaperone at WIAA Day. However, they ask that no more than one parent attend the event with each student (one parent may chaperone up to four students). Please feel free to email with any questions.
