Twenty high school junior and senior cadets are chosen by the national organization to explore engineering careers by the participating in activities with several engineering departments, including aerospace, industrial, mechanical, materials, and polymer and fiber. In the Department of Polymer and Fiber Engineering they investigate compsite materials, then design and create air foils for testing in the aerospace engineering smoke tunnel. They visit with student teams (Baja, hovercraft, solar car, and solar house), Air Force ROTC, and tour behind the scenes at Maxwell Air Force Base and the Auburn-Opelika airport.
