 SAME Kittyhawk Post Remembers its Deployed Members!


SAME Kittyhawk Post seeks to remember those who are serving our nation, especially as they are deployed far from home. They do this by sending letters and care packages as well as keeping those down range in our thoughts and prayers. Occasionally, we get some messages and pictures back!


Greetings from afar!


Keep up the strong work! You are not forgotten!


 Be a Virtual Science Fair Judge this Spring!


Looking to do something fun, safe, entertaining, thought-provoking, flexible, inspiring… and covid-safe? We got it! Be a virtual judge for Ohio’s District and/or State Science Fairs. Judge registration is now open – register TODAY! Both the District and State-level Science Days will be held in a virtual on-line format again this year. This virtual platform will allow judging to happen over a 5-7-day period with much greater time flexibility than a traditional in-person, on-campus event. You’ll view students 10-15 minutes video presentation and review their project documentation from the comfort of your home. It’s better than TEDTalks. Those of us who judged virtually last year found the process easy, enjoyable and very flexible!


Judging at the District level will occur in early April, so sign up TODAY! State level judging will occur in early May with results due by May 18th.

You are very welcome to judge at both levels, but you must register separately for each please.


Our SAME Post awards two prizes at the West District Science Day (serving the Dayton area) – for best engineering and best environmental project. If you register to be a West District judge please let Nadja Turek know as well. She will then coordinate with you and our Post’s other judges to also select our winners. Thank you for advancing our Society’s STEM mission in Ohio by being a Science Fair judge!

The SAME Kittyhawk Post welcomed the new Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT) class of Graduate in Engineering Management GEM students. This virtual event featured presentations from Joe DiMisa (Membership Chair and Young Professionals Mentor) and Joe Brink (Post President) on the post activities and benefits to belonging to SAME and the post. The highlight presentation was from Capt. Jenee Jagoda who recently graduated from the AFIT GEM school and is now Ellsworth AFB’s Deputy Engineering Operations Flight Chief. She is a prior post member, scholarship recipient, and SAME camper from Kittyhawk. 22 students attended and we hope all of them join SAME or include the post in their current membership profile. 1LT Erica Sadowski won the door prize of an Amazon EGift Card.
