CIVIL AIR PATROL NATIONAL AEROSPACE EDUCATION OFFICER SCHOOL
The 2016 National Aerospace Education Officer School was June 13-18 at Pensacola Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Fla. Building and flying model airplanes and rockets were among the many hands-on activities at the school, which was open to both AEOs and Aerospace Education Members (teachers and leaders in schools and youth groups who join in a special member category). Attendees also worked with STEM Kits and took field trips to the National Flight Academy, US Air Force flight simulators and the National Naval Aviation Museum.
The school provided information and resources to help AEOs better meet their AE responsibilities and more effectively promote Aerospace and STEM Education to members and to the general public. Class members also had the opportunity to learn about resources available through CAP and to network with fellow STEM educators. This was the 15th year of the National AEO School. Watch the video for a recap of the week. For information on upcoming regional AEO schools, please see the Events section of the website.
