Great news for our students who moved onto round two in Airbus’ Fly Your Ideas global student competition.
Fly Your Ideas global Student Competition challenges students across the globe to develop new ideas for the eco-efficient aviation industry of the future.
UNESCO supports the 2013 edition of the Fly Your Ideas competition to underline the central role of engineering in creating a sustainable future and to inspire a new wave of engineering talent.
This year the teams were asked to submit ideas to address one of the following challenges: “Energy”; “Efficiency”; “Affordable Growth”; “Traffic Growth”; “Passenger Experience”; or “Community Friendliness.” These have been identified by Airbus as six key challenges of the 21st century for a sustainable aviation industry.
We’ve been told this year globally, 618 teams registered with 102 teams making it to round two. The three RMIT teams who wow-ed the judges to make up the 102 are;
•Team “CLiMA”: http://www.airbus-fyi.com/teams/1023
•Team “ALMA”: http://www.airbus-fyi.com/teams/1095
•Team “Team 3”: http://www.airbus-fyi.com/teams/1655
Three cheers to our students. We wish them well in continuing their success as they deliver a 5000 word report and a short video on how their idea will green-ify the aviation industry.
Next stop, Hamburg for the final in June.
