Make an Impact
A team of GW students competed for the first time in person at the 2022 Design, Build, Fly competition, sponsored by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. The international competition is an opportunity for students to get practical experience in the field.
The aim for the competition was to design, build and test an unmanned aircraft to deliver components needed for vaccination—timely, as this was the first time the competition has been held in person since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Missions included aircraft deployment, staging of vaccination syringes and delivery of environmentally sensitive vaccine vial packages.
