TMCC to Host Lighter than Air Competition

Truckee Meadows Community College will host a lighter than air (LTA) competition on April 8, 11 a.m. at the college’s Dandini Campus in the student center.

This program, made possible by a Nevada NASA Space Grant Consortium, was written by TMCC Professor Dan Loranz and is designed to provide added benefits to students in the form of hands-on learning.

The college is currently looking for teams to participate in this event. Each team may consist of up to six TMCC students, and only a limited number of teams may participate. Most of the supplies will be provided through the grant.

Each team will design, build and fly radio-controlled lighter than air vehicles and complete in timed trials. Each member of the winning team will be awarded a TMCC scholarship for the 2010/2011 academic year.

For information or to register a team, please go to the LTA Web page ( ) or contact Dan Loranz at 775-673-8252.
