Madison Maier, a Glenpool High School freshman, is precise with her measurements. She knows a few extra centimeters of foam board could be the difference between a soaring model drone and a pile of broken materials.

Though she’s only in her first year of high school, Maier is already considering a career in engineering. That interest brought her to OSU-Tulsa on Friday to build a model unmanned aerial vehicle, or what’s more commonly known as a drone.

The project was part of the Tulsa Alliance for Engineering’s annual summer camp for middle and high school students. OSU-Tulsa partnered with Wallace Engineering for the event, which gives students like Maier the opportunity to learn more about the different fields of engineering.
