2020 Virtual SAE Aero Design West Updates
The 2020 SAE Aero Design West Virtual event will take place in two parts:
1. Oral Presentations – scheduled out and hosted on a web-based tool such as WebEx or Zoom in the weeks leading up to the Virtual Event Day. The presentations will take place on a separate day from the rest of the larger virtual event.
2. Virtual Event Day – the event day will consist of the career fair, sponsor skillshops, expert chats and more. We are also planning to work gamification into this event for students to compete against each other for prizes. The date is still TBD at this time based on our continued exploration on finding the right platform. We will communicate the date once established on the newsfeed at www.saeaerodesign.com/go/news
Our lead inspectors are working on providing a technical seminar during the virtual event to help teams be more prepared for tech inspection onsite in the future.
Written Design Reports:
Design reports are being currently reviewed and scored by our dedicated SAE Aero Design volunteers. Teams will be able to access their scores on the SAE Stars platform once we finish scoring and distribute the SAE Stars codes for the SAE Aero Design West event. Any changes to this will be communicated at www.saeaerodesign.com/go/news.
Oral Presentations will be judged and scored by high quality industry judges from across the United States. These presentations will take place on a virtual platform (most likely WebEx). We will share a schedule of the oral presentation times on the newsfeed www.saeaerodesign.com/go/news once they are finalized. The presentations will take place on a separate day from the rest of the larger virtual event.
We will continue to update students on a weekly basis every Tuesday. Thank you for your continued support. Stay healthy everyone!
