Details
A primary goal of the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Initiative in the DeKalb County School District is to introduce students to college and career pathways and STEM opportunities through experiential learning. Experience Aviation offers a unique pathway that introduces students to automotive and aviation careers through the Build and Soar Car and Plane Projects. The Build and Soar Program will be conducted with middle and high school students in an effort to expose students to a wide range of automotive-based STEM careers that are in high demand in the metropolitan Atlanta. These students will design a car with guidance from Experience Aviation and in conjunction with the Ford Motor Company Fund and Captain Barrington Irving.
