2017 Women Soar You Soar Program
Ever wonder what it's like to fly an airplane? Or soar into space? EAA's Women Soar You Soar is the ideal place for high school girls to find out.
The Women Soar You Soar program strives to engage, inspire, and educate young women to pursue their dreams in aviation and beyond. Held every July at Airventure, this unique day camp introduces girls to strong women mentors — from engineers to fighter pilots — who’re working in a variety of aviation and aerospace fields. Over four days, the girls will explore career options, make discoveries, find new inspirations and have a ton of fun!
Activities include hands-on workshops, mentor sessions, career exploration, and more.
