AeroEducate Activities Expand at AirVenture
EAA’s AeroEducate youth initiative, introduced at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2021, will have a vibrant schedule of events at AirVenture this year, centered at a new AeroEducate Center at Aviation Gateway Park.
AeroEducate is a broad program, encompassing all aviation careers and professional paths and designed to engage youth from kindergarten through high school. The AirVenture facility will be open in conjunction with the launch of the full AeroEducate.org website, which has been in beta testing over the past year.
“AeroEducate is a program that reaches not only young people, but welcomes parents, teachers, EAA chapter members, and other partners who want to discover more about engaging young people in the many possibilities of aviation,” said Paul Maloy, EAA AeroEducate program manager. “As we unveil the full AeroEducate website, the physical presence at AirVenture will be a tremendous resource for everyone who is eager to participate in building aviation’s future generations.”
Daily “Introducing AeroEducate” presentations in the AeroEducate Center will outline the program and how it can be accessed by young people to fully engage and explore the exciting and rewarding opportunities available throughout aviation and aerospace. Computer stations in the facility can help young people activate their own AeroEducate accounts and get them started with the activities that can be continued when they return home. In addition, AeroEducate’s premier partners — United Aviate, Siemens, and Airbus — will host daily presentations on “Building the Future of Aviation.”
The AeroEducate Center will be open 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Saturday (July 25-30) during AirVenture week.
