Shaping Future STEM Leaders

Student Testimonials

What You Experienced

"Milestone C is not just an engineering and aviation program, it is much more than that.  It's setup to inspire young individuals.  In the beginning, I was a bit skeptical about engineering careers, but now I am looking into the engineering aspect of healthcare.  Thank you for thinking that I have a lot of potential in this career.  I am going to have to rewrite my life plan, and this time include biomedical engineering. :-) Thank you is not enough!"
"I never thought a summer program could be so much fun, and I honestly learned a lot and loved it! I just found it very interesting to see all of the different engineering careers.  I especially liked the guest speaker presentation on genetic sequencing.  I love biology and thought it was fascinating! Milestone C is a program that teaches the wonders of science, engineering, and aerospace!"
"I honestly loved this program. It has definitely helped me and has the potential of helping many others.  It's fun and engaging, you meet lots of great people and learn useful skills that you WILL use in real life, in addition to gaining valuable hands-on experience.  Even the lectures are miles better and more interesting than any I've had in school before."
"My favorite part was everything!  There was not a moment during this camp when I was bored. You learn about planes and aerospace by hearing from guest speakers, flying simulators, and building drones."
"The best way to spend your summer!  My favorite part was learning how to solder and building drones."
"What a great way to gain group skills and knowledge of aviation and engineering!  When [a guest speaker] spoke about her job in biomedical engineering, I found it very interesting.  I would like to work in that field!"
"Choosing a specific part of the program as my favorite is not possible for me.  From the science behind flight to the leadership & team-building simulation, to creating drones from nothing and flying them, I loved all of it! Milestone C is a great hands-on experience for those who have an interest in engineering and flight.  It is also a great way to experience engineering and see what fields would be best for our futures. Also, great instructors! You guys really nailed it with this program. I really appreciate everything you have done for me and hope to be a part of the program in the future."
"A program to expand your intellectual boundaries, and a learning experience for all.   Thank you for keeping the program different, challenging, and interesting."
"A cool and great program about the physics and dynamics of airplanes.  They also teach you how to build, program and fly drones.  Loved it!"
"Learning why planes fly, building drones... Great overall experience!"
"Lots of fun, really hands-on, and you get to learn how to fly a plane on a simulator plus how to fly a drone!  I hope to see you guys again."
"A fun and great learning experience about aviation, engineering, and much more!"
"Being able to see our drone evolve was the best part.  Milestone C is a place where you can make friends fast, and have fun while working!"
"All the hands-on parts were my favorite.  It was fun, best summer activity for two weeks!"
