Girl Scout Juniors and Cadettes are invited to join the third annual Michigan Girls Future Flight Challenge, a free 4-week virtual state-wide aerospace competition and mentoring opportunity.


Hosted by the Women of the Aerospace Industry Association of Michigan (WAIAM), the program design period begins in October 12, 2024.


Girls in grades 4-8 will work in teams of two to six members to design a sustainable, unique form of flight to solve a pre-provided challenge statement. Each team will receive mentoring from a professional woman who works in the aerospace industry. The participants will follow a detailed curriculum that awards points each step of the way.


Every participant will receive a tee shirt and WAIAM will award prizes valued up to $1,000 for the top teams.
