Students from Antelope Valley area high schools competed in the annual Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) High School Innovation Challenge, taking on an engineering problem with limited budget, resources and time.
The challenge is modeled each year after a current Northrop Grumman program or engineering capability.
“The Northrop Grumman High School Innovation Challenge exposes students to the major steps required to develop, document and demonstrate an engineering concept,” said Krystal Puga, a systems engineer on Northrop Grumman´s James Webb Space Telescope project and the company´s HSIC deputy coordinator. “It teaches them how to develop, document and present their ideas; manage a schedule and budget; and prove that their concept meets the customer´s requirements.”
