This competition requires teams of students to become the lead designer of a new spaceport facility. The teams must design a spaceport while considering land use, operational, sustainability, and financial factors. This is an opportunity for students to work collaboratively, solve problems, and design an advanced aviation facility by applying fundamental transportation concepts learned in the classroom to a unique situation. The deliverables for this competition include an eight page paper, due in early March, and a five minute presentation.
The competition guidelines have been posted to the website as a PDF. With the delivery of Mailer III, we have extended the paper length range that we will accept for this competition. This change is made below in the "Deliverables" section. We also have ruled that a cover page and page of contents will not count toward the page requirements, as the heart of the page length guideline was meant for the main, technical details.
Please look below for the PDF titled, "MidPac 2012 Transportation Competition".
