Virtual Learning and Collaboration to Design an Airport

The Airport Design Challenge is a seven-week interactive learning and collaboration opportunity that begins on November 15, 2021, and concludes on January 14, 2022. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Aviation and Space Education (AVSED) Program organizes and sponsors the challenge. Students may form teams of up to five members or participate individually. During the challenge, they design virtual airports in Minecraft with guidance from FAA aerospace and engineering experts. Participating students meet aviation professionals, engage with other designers, and learn about the aerospace industry. The challenge offers firsthand experience in an aviation-related application of STEM concepts and helps students apply their academic knowledge and skills to professional simulations. Instructional modules cover topics ranging from airport layout, pavement, and lighting to structures and innovative growth. Weekly knowledge-check assignments and screenshots of students’ designs assess progress and provide feedback.
