United States Air Force Academy (USAFA)

We, at the U.S. Air Force Academy, are extremely pleased to be competing in this event with our fellow Academies.  We are extremely proud of the scientific and engineering education we provide to our Cadets, and the ingenuity and hard work of the entire Cadet Wing are represented by these three projects teams.  As we prepare junior officers to embark on their careers in the Air Force and Space Force, events such as the WISE Challenge provide an opportunity for them to apply the knowledge they have accumulated in their education and training to a real world problem.  It also underscores the importance of collaboration and teamwork in solving any difficult challenge.  Thank you for taking the time to read more about the Cadets’ projects, and encouraging their success.
