SAME Ft. Detrick - May Event


May 7th


Walkersville High School and SAME Ft Detrick are looking for real-world judges to provide input to our students on prototypes and presentations for the course in Engineering Design and Development.

Students are tasked with identifying a problem, justifying the problem, research a solution (cannot be patented), design and test a prototype.

Judges will act as a "R&D" approval board to green light further work on a project.

Please contact Mr. Thuman, below for more information or to participate!

President's Message – April 2015

This message is going out to our current Post Members, local SAME members who have listed us as their Secondary Post, and our volunteers who have requested to be added to e-mail notifications. The Ft. Detrick Post will soon be known as the "Mid-Maryland Post" to recognize our expanded outreach beyond Frederick and Ft. Detrick.

Located in Frederick, Maryland, our SAME Post draws on our local and regional resources. These resources are made up of, but not limited to: federal, state, and local agencies, as well as small businesses and professionals in the architecture, engineering, and construction industries.

Throughout the year, we offer PDHs for most of our educational programs and meet for fun and networking opportunities. We have a commitment to provide our attendees with the benefits of a national and regional organization serving military and civilians alike.

We have upcoming events planned for both April and May.

We look forward to your comments as we want to offer events and activities beneficial to us all.

Thank you for participating!
