Author:U.S. Air Force
Description: The Collaboratory poses military challenges for students to tackle with a community of peers — and alongside real Airmen. Experience science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in action with projects such as "Search and Rescue 2.0," which requires developing new technologies through rapid prototyping to save lives trapped in collapsed structures; "Mind of a Quadrotor," a multi-rotor helicopter with four arms (each of which has a motor and a propeller at its wing tips) that needs a navigation system entailing minimal human intervention; and "The Launch of GPS IIF," which involves targeting the precise coordinates within the GPS Constellation to launch the Air Force's newest GPS satellite.
