Working as a team, under the guidance of certified aircraft mechanics and instructors, the students learned how airplanes are constructed one piece and system at a time.
"At the center of the Build and Soar Project is the goal to connect education and industry through relevant project-based activities. Instructors utilize authentic tasks designed to build students' mathematic, science and reading skills while raising awareness to opportunities and career paths within the aviation/aerospace industry."
