  • For examples of lessons outside CAP's resources, check out the VAST repository of Aerospace Micro-Lessons from the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics  Click HERE for almost 100 lessons! These lessons are easily digestible lessons focused on aerospace principles. Each lesson is broken down into grade levels and are meant to spark conversation and interest in aerospace. Lessons will range from engineering, to mathematics, to physics, to highlighting aerospace anniversaries -- all of which will be presented in a way that easily relates to students. (There are MORE opportunities for youth and educators found HERE!)

  • CAP's AE Facebook page shares many upcoming events/programs, as well as useful info from CAP squadrons and educator members.  Stay up-to-date on this info by "liking" @capaerospce on Facebook.
