WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE – The Air Force Research Laboratory’s Gaming Research Integration for Learning Laboratory will hold a media open house from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 7, at the Wright Brothers Institute’s Tec^Edge Innovation & Collaboration Center in Dayton.
The open house will feature science, technology, engineering and math projects developed during AFRL’s summer GRILL internship for local Dayton-area high school, undergraduate and graduate students. Student technology displays will focus on 3-D modeling, simulation and game engine technology, including United States School of Aerospace Medicine’s aero medical evacuation equipment training demonstrations, extensions of the Full Throttle STEM challenge problems, game-based modeling and simulation tools, and more. Students will also be available to demonstrate their work and to answer questions.
AFRL’s GRILL program is part of collaborations with school districts in Auglaize, Darke, Mercer, Miami and Montgomery Counties, and ensures that the outcomes of GRILL’s nine-week immersive internships have a significant impact on the community. The STEM content resulting from the summer effort is made available to local school districts free-of-charge in an effort to support the student pipeline for local universities and the Dayton STEM workforce.
