Civil Air Patrol’s STEM kits are generating sky-high enthusiasm among K-12 youth and CAP cadets across America.
“These kits are helping to reach a new generation of STEM learners, piquing interest in science, technology, engineering and math through curriculum driven by hands-on fun activities,” said Dr. Jeff Montgomery, CAP’s Aerospace Education director.
Launched in 2013 by CAP’s AE team, the STEM Kit Program provides K-12 teachers and CAP aerospace education officers with interactive kits to choose from to help their students and cadets find and develop passions in aerospace, aviation, rocketry, robotics and more.
The kits are also available to formal and informal educators who participate in CAP’s Aerospace Education Member (AEM) Program. The AEM is a special membership category available to educators, who pay a one-time fee of $35 and have free access to the organization’s aerospace education products and programs.
