“We’re thrilled Ohio Governor-elect and Mrs. DeWine will participate at this event,” said Cooley. “We want to excite folks, especially young people, about science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The Air Force was a service born of science and technology innovation and we hope events like this will light a spark of interest for young people that will help prepare them for success in the workplace of the future.”

Free virtual reality and simulator rides will be available throughout the day and t-shirts will be launched by a robot to families in attendance.
