Build A Plane will sponsor Teacher’s Day at EAA AirVenture later this month.
The July 28 event will expose teachers to a variety of programs and curricula that allow educators to put aviation in classrooms, from kindergarten through high school grades. Teachers from across the United States are expected to participate.
“We are amazed how many great opportunities are out there to use aviation to engage and motivate kids to learn,” says Lyn Freeman, Build A Plane’s president. “Today’s students respond to real world applications and challenges, and aviation really captures their attention.”
Teachers will be exposed to materials available from private industry, the federal government and aviation organizations. Participants will have the opportunity to take part in a number of hands-on presentations and to speak directly to program specialists. A wide variety of free take-home materials will be available for all attendees.
Attendees can obtain one graduate credit through Viterbo University, as well as complimentary admission to AirVenture after attending Teachers’ Day.
Registration is free.
