EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wisconsin — (June 16, 2022) — The UAS4STEM competition for high school students is back for the second year at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2022. UAS4STEM is a competition that allows kids to see different career opportunities in the UAS and aviation industries. The Academy of Model Aeronautics event is for groups of students, ages from 11-17, who build an unmanned aircraft system (UAS) and compete against other teams to complete a specific mission through different obstacles. 

“The competition allows kids to have the opportunity to create innovative technology while also developing valuable life lessons within the workforce,” said Kyle Jaracz, AMA’s Education Director. “It is always exciting to see what the kids envision and how they work as a team to develop and compete with an unmanned aircraft system.”

The competition will take place on July 28-29 near the southwest corner of Camp Scholler. The top teams from the national level will be recognized during Friday’s afternoon air show. Teams in first, second and third place will receive Skydio products and scholarship awards funded by the AMA Foundation and Skydio.
