This is the third year for the event, which allows for students to interact with FAA employees, as many of them work toward a career in aviation.

"They're what we consider our workforce of the future so we're excited to open our doors to them so that way they can get a glimpse of the exciting research and testing that we do here at the technical center," said Lyndsay Digneo, aviation STEM program manager for the FAA.

The students also heard from Shaesta Waiz, the youngest woman to fly solo around the world in a single-engine aircraft.
