UAMMI recently participated in the first ever STEM City at the Warriors Over the Wasatch Air Show at Hill Air Force Base on June 23-24, 2018.
STEM City was a unique attraction organized by the state STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math) group and the STEM program manager at Hill Air Force Base. It was an entire hangar filled with STEM related activities and information designed to engage children and teens in the industry. Amongst those activities was the UAMMI booth with a display of carbon fiber products made in Utah. From carbon fiber wheels by ENVE to carbon fiber arrows from Easton, we had a wide assortment of products for kids to interact with.
Over 10,000 kids explored the STEM City while at the air show, which was a tremendous success for this inaugural event. Children, teens, and parents were thrilled to explore new technologies, see the various products made in Utah and learn about working in the industry.
UAMMI was happy to spread enthusiasm about what’s happening in Utah’s advance materials industry. We look forward to it paying off and helping grow the industry through the involving the up and coming workforce.
