Art and Science of Flying Ground SchoolArt and Science of Flying Ground School

Are you an educator, student, pilot, scientist, engineer, artist, athlete, or any person with a learner’s mindset? Then join us for dynamic discussions and experiential activities. Through the lens of aviation, you will gain new insights into the world around you and renewed awareness about yourself! The U.S. is facing a crisis in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). We need to produce more STEM teachers and graduates in STEM majors, as well as generate greater interest in STEM among women, minorities, and underserved students. “The Art and Science of Flying” is one such program that could rekindle an appreciation for airports as valued resources for STEM education. Developed by pilots and Master Instructors Linda Castner and Rich Stowell, the workshop weaves history, biology, and technology into a dynamic exploration of the wonder of flight. According to Castner, “This is much more than a run-of-the-mill ground school for pilots. It’s also an outreach program to bring teachers and their students to the airport.” The Idaho STEM Action Center has pledged funding that will allow twenty female, minority, or underserved students to participate. The all day workshop will be held at Jackson Jet Center on the Boise Airport on April 23rd, 2016.
