We serve school districts with workshops and literature that will contribute to meeting the Common Core Standards for ELD, ELA, Science and Technical Subjects, as well as open students’ minds to career possibilities in our nation’s emerging industries. We provide real-world examples of the importance of cross-disciplinary literacy.
Very importantly, we provide access to diverse role models in STEM careers to motivate students towards careers to which they likely have never been exposed. This aspirational step in a student's education, to connect directly with people they can relate to in many ways, often makes the difference between a student understand WHY he/she must commit towards their education and work towards a brighter future and falling victim to the status quo surrounding them.
We offer author workshops (writing and peer editing) and assembly services with an aviation and STEM focus for elementary, middle and high school students. These services encourage college-going actions, planning and the emulating of proven successful educational, work and entrepreneurship journeys. These presentations can be included in your district’s STEM programs to enrich the content and encourage active participation from students. See testimonials on recent school visits here.
