To propel the continued growth of aerospace careers, the nation must deliver and sustain educational activities aimed at students in K-12, college and beyond. AeroWeb is dedicated to creating activities that include various types of interaction that sparks a desire to engage in the aerospace industry.
Emerging technologies in the aerospace industry such as the Falcon 9 booster landing and artificial intelligence (AI) are leading the future. Therefore, the erospace education needs to undergo major changes to be successful. This success depends on the professionals and their collaboration with the industry and educational institutions, reimagining the current curriculum.
Future education must deliver academic programs that meet the new technologies and make them available to workers through ongoing professional education.
We are launching AeroWeb, our Aerospace Education and information site!
The STEM Program
In our increasingly complex world, it is fundamental that our nation's youth are prepared to bring knowledge and skills to solve problems, make sense of information, and know how to gather and evaluate evidence to make decisions. These are the kinds of skills that students develop in science, technology, engineering, and math, including computer science-disciplines collectively known as STEM/CS.
If we want a nation where our future leaders can understand and solve some of the complex challenges of today and tomorrow, and to meet the demands of the dynamic and evolving workforce, building students' skills, content knowledge, and literacy in STEM fields is essential.
