What is AeroEducate?

AeroEducate is a program created by the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) in cooperation with North Carolina State University and in partnership with other companies and organizations from across the country and around the world.

At its core, AeroEducate is based on a curated series of rigorously vetted STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) activities and an innovative badging system. Students who participate in AeroEducate will explore and develop their interests in a wide variety of STEM-related subjects, using the excitement of aviation not only as the framework, but as a source of inspiration. By working through these activities, students will be able to track their progress — and even pick up some friendly bragging rights — by earning badges that will be nationally recognized by EAA and our partners.

AeroEducate provides teachers, parents, EAA chapters and other youth leaders a toolbox to help inspire future generations of aviators, engineers, mechanics, astronauts, and more by igniting their passion for aviation.

AeroEducate Mission

Broaden all youths’ access to the world of aviation by providing aeronautical experiences that inspire, engage and instill The Spirit of Aviation while opening doors to long-term careers and a community of aviation enthusiasts.

AeroEducate Vision

A vibrant and growing aviation community, advanced by inspired youth.

Why EAA Developed AeroEducate?

In 2018, EAA saw the growing need to provide youth with a safe and fun way to learn and foster a passion for aviation. EAA also saw an industry demand for the next generation of pilots, engineers, and mechanics. With that small idea in mind, EAA started developing what is now known as AeroEducate. It has evolved to become an online tool that will cultivate the next leaders in aviation by supporting youth and their goals.

What is EAA?

The Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) is a growing and diverse organization of members with a wide range of aviation interests and backgrounds. Founded in 1953 by a group of individuals in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, who were interested in building their own airplanes, EAA expanded its mission of growing participation in aviation to include antiques, classics, warbirds, aerobatic aircraft, ultralights, helicopters, and contemporary manufactured aircraft.

EAA is the only association that offers the fun and camaraderie of participating in the flying, building, and restoring of recreational aircraft with the most passionate community of aviation enthusiasts.
