In NASA’s most recent mission, the rover Perseverance carried the robotic helicopter Ingenuity to Mars. Ingenuity successfully completed the first powered controlled flight by an aircraft on a planet besides Earth and is still performing flights.

On Friday, November 12, 2021, from 9:30 am to 11:00 am, SU IID Alumnus Stan Nowak and his engineering colleagues at AeroVironment will present about the design development of Ingenuity.

A flight demonstration of the only Ingenuity prototype on this planet is part of the event in the dome.

You are cordially invited to this unique SoD event.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
