Icon for digital videoCivil Air Patrol’s Aerospace Education team wants to share video lessons on this page. The lessons will serve cadets and students at a range of ages and over a variety of aerospace/STEM subjects. This new page is especially important during these times when COVID-19 precautions and closings have meant a break from cadet and student gatherings. The video list will be updated regularly and will include video lessons conducted and submitted by squadron AEOs, educators, and the AE national HQ team. Items for submission to this collection are encouraged. Lessons should use materials readily available at home. To submit an item, contact ae@capnhq.gov.
