The mission of Project Payload is to empower historically underrepresented and educationally disadvantaged middle school girls to enter aerospace engineering and computer science fields and to advance their career readiness in technologies of the future, especially rocketry and satellite design and construction. Project Payload will achieve its mission by providing hands-on problem-based learning experiences for its students.
Time and Date
Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm, July 22nd – August 2nd. Students will also be required to participate in two Saturdays per month in Fall 2019 and Spring 2020.
Project Payload will take place on the USC campus, the STARBASE on the Joint Forces Military Base in Los Alamitos, CA, and at the Base 11 Innovation Center’s new fabrication laboratory, which is located at Tomorrow’s Aeronautical Museum in Compton.
