Building Tomorrow's Work Force Today
Chairman and CEO of Aurora Flight Sciences, John Langford, believes that the real
worth of a privately owned business comes from how we actually behave, that our
actions define our success and determines how we are judged. At a time when our
country has a greater need than ever before for a new generation of engineers and
scientists. The staff at all four Aurora locations take an active role consistently
mentoring local students through internships, tours, school visits and hands on
support of the thousands of students who compete in the Team America Rocketry. Science,
Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) is major focus at Aurora. Our goal
is to strengthen the workforce pipeline by supporting programs and events that focus
student development, achievement and diversity.
In 2013 Aurora will launch a new Small Unmanned Aerial System competition. Semifinalists
and finalists will demonstrate problem and solution mission objectives in a timed
presentation based on National Technology Standards.
