  • Grand Forks mothers, daughters learn about STEM

    Teams of mothers and daughters flowed into an upstairs room of the Grand Forks Public Library on a Saturday morning, January 26, 2019. The women and girls seated themselves in anticipation of the science, technology, engineering and mathematics workshop they came for, hosted by the base Airman and Family Readiness Center. The mother-daughter STEM workshop was led by local volunteers with the University of North Dakota Society of Women Engineers who served as role models to show attendees STEM careers are for girls and boys. The workshop is one of several the A&FRC has hosted within the last year.
  • First metallic 3D printed part installed on F-22

    The use of 3D printing is not new to the Air Force. The service has routinely used 3D printing for legacy aircraft requiring parts that may be out of production due to manufacturing obsolescence. 3D printing is becoming more common place in the Air Force’s supply chain when it comes to its fifth-generation aircraft. In December, a metallic 3D printed part was installed by 574th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron maintainers on an operational F-22 Raptor during depot maintenance.
  • Youth Center wins “Climate Superstars” at Grand Forks Air Force Base

    The Boys and Girls Club of America Torch Club thought they were receiving a safety briefing, but instead were surprised with news they won “Climate Superstars”, an environmental awareness challenge, December 12, 2018, at Grand Forks Air Force Base, North Dakota. This environmental contest is designed to ignite science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) interest among kids and teens while raising awareness about the importance of environmentalism and sustainability. Torch Club members competed nationwide against 200 teams by completing tasks focused on themes such as improving energy, conserving water and reducing waste.
  • Secretary of the Air Force urges innovation in software acquisition model

    The process used by the Air Force to acquire software is archaic and needs to modernize now if the service is to win in a peer-to-peer conflict, said Secretary of the Air Force Heather Wilson. The secretary made those observations and gave a glimpse into the future of software acquisition during her keynote presentation Aug. 27 at the Air Force Information Technology and Cyberpower Conference in Montgomery, Alabama.
  • STEM bus brings science to life at Mountain Home AFB

    The base Youth Center partnered with the Micron STEM Bus to bring the world of science, technology, engineering and math to base children. STEM is an area of focus that looks to prepare children for educational opportunities in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The STEM Bus provided the Youth Center a new way to bring the knowledge and excitement of those four fields to students.
  • CAP Cadets trained on Cybersecurity by ISR Wing Airmen

    Cyber is the frontier of the future, and when it comes to our future, we must think of who will replace us. Who will carry on and create better and faster ways of doing things? The Airmen of the 7th Intelligence Squadron are working to answer that question by reaching out to their local Civil Air Patrol Squadron. For the second year in a row, CAP cadets were able to meet with Airmen from the 7th IS for a National Cyber Training Camp. More than 70 high school level cadets and nine 7th IS cyber warriors were in attendance.
  • Officials announce 2018 ACC STEM Award winners

    Air Combat Command officials have announced the ACC Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Award winners for 2018. The awards fall into two categories: science and technology and annual acquisition.
  • Smart automation, AI to accelerate materials discovery, innovation

    WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio --To meet the demands of the ever-increasing pace of technological development in order to create the next generation of Air Force technology, researchers are challenged to find ways to shrink the timeline for materials discovery, development and deployment.According to Dr. Benji Maruyama, a research scientist
  • JBLE Airmen help students make strides in STEM

    They may still be learning how to tie their shoes and memorizing multiplication tables, but a group of students from Bethel Manor Elementary School in Hampton have no problem teaching a robot how to walk. The Hampton school’s science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM, club has blossomed with the support of volunteers from the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association’s Tidewater chapter, which counts Airmen from Joint Base Langley-Eustis among its members.
  • Air Force lab puts medical devices through their paces

    “We break stuff,” said Lt. Col. Brandi Ritter, chief of the Air Force Medical Evaluation Support Activity, showing off the facility where her unit tests the devices medical Airmen use to complete their mission.
