Summer Camp Sponsorship

The SAME Japan Post helped sponsor R.J. Smola, who attended the SAME summer camp in Colorado Springs at the United States Air Force Academy..  RJ appreciated his hands on experience tackling engineering projects in a wide variety of fields.  R.G. said "Touring the engineering departments and campus at USAFA has re-invigorated my desire to attend this beautiful school. Departments such as the aerospace, astronautical, and civil engineering departments gave me a good look about what I would like to do in the future."
