STEM Education through Aviation
Aviation is an excellent STEM education platform. In addition to STEM, it also provides history lessons, communication skills, and financial planning with practical applications to build solid life-skills.
Did you know some people learn to fly before they learn to drive? You can fly for the airlines at age 21, and through 2025, it is predicted that every major airline will continue to be hiring!
When I was giving a presentation, a parent said, “my child has an interest in aviation, but I have no idea where to start.”
At another presentation, a teacher admitted not knowing there was a local flight school, or that her children were old enough to start flight training!
We want anyone interested in aviation to have access to learning opportunities, activities, and ultimately maybe even a career in aviation.
We’re bringing aviation education to the forefront.
We offer in-class presentations and curriculum assistance to teachers looking to incorporate aviation into their course curriculum.
Join us at an aviation event or set up a plane tour to see the science and thrill of flight first hand!
There are many ways to incorporate STEM and the theories of flight into the classroom. Contact us for recommended activities for your students age group.
At OAFC we have the same simulators pilots train on. This is a great window into aviation training and what to expect when you’re off the ground.
