Event Details

Registration is now closed. We look forward to seeing you at future Inspiring Minds events.

Have you asked yourself: "Why make aircraft with composite materials?" or "Is it safe to fly in damaged aircraft?"

The new generation of commercial jets constructed with high-strength carbon fiber composite materials are light-weight and fuel-efficient. However, blunt impacts from baggage/cargo loaders and hail stones can result in damage nearly invisible to the naked eye. Join us for this extraordinary opportunity to hear Professor Hyonny Kim describe research underway at UC San Diego’s new Composite Aviation Safety Center to detect, predict and avoid damage to modern composite airframes at the Boeing Company in Seal Beach.  

6 p.m. Reception
7 p.m. Program

Cost: $15 per person (spouses/guests welcome) | FREE for Alumni Benefactors

PLEASE NOTE: Given the tight security requirements from the Boeing Company, this event is for U.S. Persons only.  Walk-ins will not be allowed.
