Last year, ATEC member dues funded the creation of a new foundation, Choose Aerospace, with the mission of promoting aviation technical careers.
Council leadership immediately began implementing an aggressive initiative to support the expansion and development of high school aviation technical programs. Over the last year the foundation managed a procurement process to identify aviation technical curriculum development partners and will soon roll out an ambitious plan to reach 10,000 users of the content by 2027.
Choose Aerospace is currently soliciting applications for high school programs that will pilot the program during the 2021-2022 academic year. For more information about the curriculum, including the previously-recorded informational briefing, visit chooseaerospace.org/curriculum.
While the deadline to apply is June 15, Choose Aerospace will continue to accept applications until twenty pilot schools are selected.
Stay tuned for updates on everything ATEC members need to know as well as ways that you can help the council and the AMTS community.
