The symposium brings educators from around the nation for two days of sharing insights, ideas, and best practices for starting and building aviation STEM programs.
This symposium is the only high school event in the nation that specifically targets aviation and aerospace content.
Pilots, drone operators, aerospace engineers, scientists, technologists, and technicians will always be in demand. Despite the impact of the pandemic, forecasts continue to project shortfalls over the next 20 years as a result of an aging workforce. The AOPA Foundation High School Aviation STEM Symposium is an opportunity for educators and administrators to discover how they can prepare students for success in these exciting and well-paying careers.
This is your chance to get to know the leaders in the field. Our speakers come with a wealth of experience in education, aviation, aerospace, and more. They will share lessons learned and provide fresh ideas to take back to your classrooms. Breakout sessions are designed to help you get the most out of your experience, whether you’re interested in starting an aviation program, adding aviation content to STEM classes, or enhancing an existing aviation initiative at you school.
The excitement about aviation education from participants at this symposium creates an energized atmosphere you won’t find anywhere else.
