EAA AeroEducate

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.

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.
