Capitol Technology University
October 8, 2018
What’s the best way to attract more young people to STEM fields? Research points to the critical importance of starting early.
To help convey the excitement and potential of STEM to middle and high school students, Capitol Technology University is partnering with a Maryland non-profit, Science Engineering Partnership (SEP), to launch a new program dubbed AE Saturdays, starting in spring 2019.
AE stands for “astronautical engineering” – one of the flagship degree programs at Capitol. The Laurel-based university is home to a Space Flight Operations Training Center (SFOTC) that provides real-time training for aspiring space flight operators and engineers – by means of the same simulation equipment used for training at NASA.
