K-12 STEM Links

Some good news with our current world, A middle school teacher contacted me letting me know the value that she & her students are getting out of the web site while studying from home. She let me know about an interesting WWII Car, Airplane and Tank article on:


There are 3 main very high value community based organizations (CBO) I recommend for any K-12 STEM program. These 3 are also where I got my start in middle school in the early 90’s


EAA Experimental Aircraft Association  

Young Eagles:


Find a Local Chapters:



The 3 largest airshows in the US are (in normal times):

Airventure in Oshkosh Wisconsin put on by the EAA (July / August)


Sun-N-Fun in Lake Land Florida (March / April)


Copper State in Buckeye Arizona (usually early in the year)



AMA Academy of Model Aeronautics

very accessible and low cost, a good foundation to learn about aviation & turn it into a life long passion.



Flite Test is another CBO that has strong low cost / easy access RC aircraft & Multi Rotors.



Model Rockets:


Tripoli Rocketry Association, Inc. the main organization that puts together model rocket launches, works with FAA & local government to make sure everything is good to go. They focus on high power rockets but they also have the smaller ones at the launches as well.  http://www.tripoli.org/

Estes Rockets a supplier of A-E impulse model rockets https://estesrockets.com/


Hope this helps with your schools programs, feel free to share with other educators.
