The online series will engage and inspire students’ interests in aviation as classrooms remain closed during the coronavirus outbreak.
Amid school closures caused by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Redbird Flight Simulations is launching an online series of the Redbird STEM Lab, the company’s popular, interactive classes for students in middle school and high school. Beginning on March 31st, Redbird’s STEM Director Greg Roark will lead students through six virtual classes aimed at engaging their creativity and continuing to foster their interests in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) outside the classroom.
All students in grades 5-12 are welcome to attend classes and fly the simulators
Austin, TX (June 6, 2018) – Another installment of the Redbird STEM Lab will take place June 15-16 during the AOPA Fly-In in Missoula, Montana. Open to all students in grades 5-12, the STEM lab will utilize Jay Velocity flight simulators to integrate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) into aviation-themed classes. Redbird again has teamed up with Greg Roark, CEO of Aspen Aerospace Alliance, to instruct the classes.
Aviation-themed, youth outreach initiative enhances program with Redbird FMX simulator.
Austin, TX (January 8, 2018) – Supporting the growth of its innovative, aviation-based, youth outreach program, the Bob Hoover Academy (BHA) and Redbird Flight Simulations have partnered to integrate flight simulation into its curriculum.
Based in Salinas, California, which retains one of the state’s highest, youth homicide rates, BHA utilizes flight training to engage local, at-risk teens in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education. Since 2017, and for several years prior under the moniker, Every Kid Can Fly, the academy has executed a full ground training curriculum and flight training program with a single instructor and airplane. With a full-motion, Redbird FMX simulator in its facility, BHA now enables students to hone their skills even when they are apart from their aircraft and instructor.
Registration is open for students and teachers to participate in the Redbird STEM Lab.
Redbird Flight Simulations will host a STEM Lab in its booth during EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2017. The Redbird STEM Lab will integrate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) into aviation themed classes while incorporating Jay Velocity flight simulators into the lessons. One goal of the STEM Lab is to highlight how impactful, hands-on training makes for a fun learning environment.
Classes will run Monday, July 24 to Saturday, July 29 from
On April 11, 2017, Redbird Flight Simulations will help the Lonestar State celebrate “Texas STEM Powered by Aviation and Aerospace Day” at the State Capitol to promote STEM education taught through aviation and aerospace. During the event, government officials and staff, Texas-based companies, and high school students will experience the fun of flight while learning about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Event attendees will take flight in both desktop and full motion simulators provided by Redbird.
