Please read the additional following information VERY closely, as it is CRITICAL for you to know and consider before taking a registration slot by filling out the form below:
-There are 150 slots for U.S. high schools (all types) to compete in the 2019 challenge. Competing teams can be either high school classes or after-school programs, but must include AT LEAST, but NOT LIMITED to four students, including at least one male student and one female student, with the exception of single-sex schools. Only one team per school may enter.
-GAMA will send registered teachers complimentary “Fly to Learn” curricula, which comes with flight simulation software powered by X-Plane. GAMA will not provide rudders, a yoke or additional tools to aide with the software, but teams are welcome to use them at their own cost and discretion.
-Teachers will guide students through the science of flight and airplane design, completing the curricula in approximately six weeks in the classroom or in four weeks through an accelerated program. Each team will apply what they have learned by modifying the design of an airplane. The schools will then compete in a virtual fly-off based on a specific mission profile and instructions GAMA sends. The fly-off submissions will be scored on aerodynamic and performance parameters while flying a specific mission profile. Judges from GAMA will select the winning team based on that score and other factors they send with the competition instructions.
-By filling in this form below, you are automatically registered for this competition. Once registration fills, it will close, and then GAMA will send all teams information about the next steps.
