On Saturday, February 22, 2020, the Arizona Chapter of the Vertical Flight Society participated in the Chandler Innovation STEM Fair at Hamilton High School. This high school has over 3,700 students, many whom participated in showcasing their innovative ideas, some with live demonstrations and hands-on activities.
Justine Tang and Ryan Teves from the Arizona VFS Chapter judged the student's STEM exhibits, while Gabriel Calderon and Ron Alto manned the VFS booth, teaching the students and many adults about the Society's mission and vertical flight concepts through the use of rubberband-powered helicopters, twirling helicopters, and brochures. The eight-hour event was very well attended by students of all ages and their parents.
A well deserved thank you to Justine, Ryan, Gabriel and Ron from the Arizona Chapter for their valued time and support of this STEM event.
