Aerospace Education

Lt Col Steve Ellis - ae@wywg.cap.gov

CAP’s aerospace education efforts focus on two different audiences: volunteer CAP members and the general public.  The programs ensure that CAP members have an appreciation for and knowledge of aerospace issues.  To advance within the organization, members are required to participate in the educational program.  Aerospace educators at CAP’s National Headquarters at Maxwell Air Force Base, Ala., provide current materials that reflect the highest standards of educational excellence.  Divided into two parts: internal and external. 

The internal aerospace education program has two parts as well: cadet and senior. Cadets complete aerospace education as one of the requirements to progress through the  achievement levels of the cadet program. Senior members have a responsibility to become knowledgeable of aerospace issues and the AE program that CAP provides. They are further encouraged to share the information obtained with their local communities and schools.

CAP’s external aerospace programs are conducted through our nation’s educational system.  Each year, CAP sponsors many workshops  across the nation, reaching hundreds of educators and thereby thousands of young people.  These workshops highlight basic aerospace knowledge and focus on advances in aerospace technology.  CAP’s aerospace education members receive more than 20 free aerospace education classroom materials.
