TEM+C creates bold, innovative challenges to capture our nation’syounger generation’s attention and spirit.

We engage students as young as 5th grade through University with our projects, programs, and challenges in Aerospace, Aeronautics, and Aviation. These projects are our attempt to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers. Our goal is to get students excited about those career fields. Our aerospace projects are like any aerospace project that any aerospace company would try to attempt. The missions can be accomplished, but it will take planning, experimentation, discovery, engineering, design, and construction. There is no guarantee of success, however, through our engineering building and testing, we plan for the worst and hope for the best.

These projects teach the students how similar projects are conducted at any company that uses the engineering process. The students learn through the process of success and failure. The students learn through creative innovation when building their aerospace vehicles. The launch day is just like any SpaceX or NASA launch, all our planning, experimenting, checking and double checking comes down to the final second of the countdown clock.

That is real life problem solving.

Just some of the programs that we offer: TARC (The American Rocketry Challenge), Junior High Power Rocketry Certification, Learn to Fly RC at the park, UAS4STEM, Tiny Trainer guided build sessions, STEM Wing Build Session, STEM Wing Racing, Discovery Flights in our Cessna 150 (at Chandler Airport), Private Pilot Training for High School Students, and more.

Coming in the spring of 2022 “Taking Flight”.  Check our web-site regularly for updated information.
