It is often stated that the aviation community needs to spark interest in aviation.Simply stated, this is true.Captain Judy Rice’s National Tour and Around the World Flight engaged more than 10,000 students in the United States and over 20,000 students in other nations.
The students’ Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (S.T.E.A.M.) and career awareness was developed through numerous events.These students were exposed to real-time cultures by joining Captain Judy in her travels through social media, the web site blog, or LIVE broadcasts.Students participated in the Winds Aloft Contest.This student-led program empowered and excited all the participating students in their learning through researching, analyzing, and forecasting winds aloft and flight parameters from one of Think Global Flight’s routes of their choosing.Students interacted with Rice throughout her flight, comparing their predictions with actual winds aloft and much more.
