Plenary Panel
Theme: Aerospace: The Next 50 Years - What if We Could...
10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Panelists will be asked to take a very "out-of-the-box" look at the future of the aviation industry by asking "What if we could ... ?" as opposed to "What if we just did the usual more effectively?" This approach will enable panelists to address exciting opportunities for youth and students in the areas of engineering, science and innovation.
