Seventeen teams from across the Rockville and Washington, D.C. offices, made up of both engineers and other functions, were given 35 minutes to design, build and test a device used to launch a “secret surveillance technology” before demonstrating in front of a panel of judges that it could “go the distance”.
Vice President & General Manager Kris Busch kicked off the event, and employees cheered the teams on throughout the lunch hour. Teams were awarded for best overall performance, best design and best team name.
National Engineering Week celebrates the innovative work engineers do every day. It is a key initiative to raising interest in the field across the country to kids and adults alike, and BAE Systems is a proud employer of thousands of engineers worldwide.
