In an effort to perpetuate an interest in STEM subjects and careers, CAP’s Aerospace Education program provides numerous STEM products and programs for CAP’s almost 2,400 cadet squadron AEOs and over 3,300 educator members to infuse in youth development programs nationwide.

CAP’s adult members are composed of many STEM professionals who have an interest in promoting STEM careers through their volunteer service in mentoring CAP cadets and students in their communities nationwide. Educator members of CAP integrate STEM throughout their educational programs to provide rigor and relevance to the core curricula.  As a result of the CAP STEM Kit program, CAP’s adult members will help mentor youth to acquire and sustain a natural interest in STEM.
