NFFS has partnered with Science Olympiad to sponsor and support the
Indoor Flying Events for the B and C divisions. This is a pre-build event, in which a flying model to fit current rules is constructed and perfected prior to the competition, where it is flown for duration in a gymnasium or ballroom facility.
In addition to sponsoring scholarships at Nationals, NFFS provides helpful resources for students, coaches and mentors. These resources will continue to grow as we develop materials. Additionally, NFFS will seek out flying opportunities for the students beyond the SO competitions, where they can perfect their flying skills alongside NFFS members at an AMA competition or in guided seminars. In the photo at the right, a Science Olympiad student launches her model at the 2022 US Indoor Nationals at Pontiac Michigan.
Our goal is to help students have an enjoyable experience in building and flying free flight models, overcoming the frustrations that can develop.
