Teacher Day at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2021 Inspires Educators to Get Aviation Into the Classroom
June 24, 2021 – EAA is hosting Teacher Day on July 30 at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2021, and educators are encouraged to attend this free event that brings new ideas and activities on incorporating aviation and aerospace into the classroom.
This event, supported by Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation, is open to all educators. The event comes along with a box lunch and an AirVenture wristband as a thank you to our educators.
“Teachers Day has been going on for many years here at EAA, and has grown to be a great event for educators to get together and take aviation and STEM activities back to their classroom,” said Cassie Cobb, EAA’s museum educator. “We want the teachers to bring something new back to their classroom and enjoy the day at the World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration.”
Activities include a keynote speaker and a variety of workshops throughout the morning. The workshops will focus on ways to integrate aviation and STEM into the teaching curricula for the fall. EAA will also be presenting AeroEducate, which is a free resource providing STEM-based, standard-compliant activities teachers can use for free. Educators will end the day with a grab-and-go lunch and have the option to test out the Redbird simulators, while enjoying the rest of the air show.
If you are a teacher and would like to attend, you must register in advance. Please email Cassie Cobb at firstname.lastname@example.org and provide the following information:
- Your first and last name

Registration will be open until Monday, July 8, unless filled.
