Classic Aero-TV: Empowering Educators - Wings Over the Rockies' Teacher Outreach

From 2016 (YouTube Version): An Amazing Opportunity For Colorado’s STEM Educators…

In this video you’ll hear about a program that is designed to inspire teachers to inspire their students by sharing with them the excitement of flying in a 1942 Boeing PT-17 Stearman trainer plane. Hetty Carlson, of the Teacher Flight Program, explains how they use aviation as a tool to motivate and encourage students.

Their Colorado-based operation has a goal of flying one teacher from every school along the Colorado Front Range. Counting up the school districts and the schools involved means that they are offering 1,600 teachers, through the year 2020, the chance to share the thrill of flight with their students.

The Teacher Flight Program works with the Colorado-based Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum. The museum provides training materials and other assistance to promote aviation education. They also provide a free pass to the museum for every student in the school.

Watch this video and you’ll see the unique way aviation affects the teachers, and it also reveals how an exciting aviation experience can be a training tool to motivate young students.
