Registration Opens for ‘Women Soar You Soar’ at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2015
Program Helps High School-Age Girls Discover Aviation
January 29, 2015 — Registration is now open for EAA’s Women Soar You Soar day camp program, which will allow 100 high school age girls to discover more about aviation and all its possibilities from aviators, engineers, and leaders during EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2015. The program will take place July 19-22.
Women Soar You Soar welcomes both enrollees as well as female mentors from the aviation and aerospace fields. The program’s unique 4-to-1 attendees-to-mentors ratio provides a tremendous opportunity for young women to discover all the possibilities within the world of flight. They can ask questions of women who are already noteworthy and established in the field.
“The close-knit community between girls and the mentors creates a bond during Women Soar You Soar that is unlike any similar program within aviation or technology,” said Janine Diana, EAA’s vice president of people and culture. “Add to that the excitement and fun at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh–the World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration–and it creates an unforgettable adventure for young women who are just discovering where they want to go in life.”
Activities over the four-day session for girls entering grades nine through 12 in fall 2015 include flight simulators, workshops, sessions with aviation personalities, and insider access during the AirVenture air shows.
Cost is $75 per participant and is in a day-camp format, with accommodations not included. More information and registration materials are now available at www.eaa.org/womensoar. The program also welcomes additional mentors who are women from all walks of the aviation and aerospace community, and want to give back to the next generation.
Women Soar You Soar is supported by Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Women in Aviation International, International Society of Transport Aircraft Trading, and Jerry and Lori Fussell.
