    Teachers & Parents also Encouraged to Participate on Opening Day of ACE

    Presented by the Idaho Division of Aeronautics and its many wonderful partners, the Aerospace Career Exploration (ACE) Academy is a summer program designed to introduce 13- to 18-year olds to the myriad careers available in the aviation and space industries.

    ACE Academy engages participants through STEM-related experiential activities and field trips to facilities such as air traffic control towers, flight schools and aerospace businesses, college aviation programs, military aviation bases, and more. Other activities may include seminars on aerospace careers, as well as experiences with hands-on labs, drones, and in some cases, even a flight in a small airplane.

    While ACE Academy focuses on teenagers, research has shown that parents and teachers may experience anxiety about science, engineering, technology, and math subjects. Research also has shown that parents are receptive to instruction on how to engage with their children in STEM learning activities, and that teachers need to experience the same engaging learning environments and practices as their students. Thus, parents and teachers are invited to participate alongside ACE teens on opening day, June 13th.

    Enrollment is limited, with tuition used to offset some of the costs. Limited scholarship assistance may be available for qualifying teenagers.

    Support for this regional network of ACE Academies is being provided by the Idaho Division of Aeronautics, Boise State University College of Engineering, NASA Idaho Space Grant Consortium, Idaho STEM Action Center, Idaho Aviation Association, Idaho Aviation Foundation, Albertsons, and others.
