Aerospace Education

CAP's Aerospace Education efforts focus on two different audiences: volunteer CAP members and the general public.  The programs ensure that all CAP members (seniors, educators, and cadets) have an appreciation for and knowledge of aerospace issues.  The CAP Aerospace Education program offers over 450 classroom ready projects available electronically for Aerospace Education Officers, classroom & homeschool teachers, and youth organizations.

Internal Aerospace Program

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. Cadet and senior members are further encouraged to share the information obtained with their local communities, schools, and the general public.

External Aerospace Program

CAP's external aerospace programs are conducted through our nation's educational system. Each year CAP sponsors many workshops in states 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 450 free aerospace education—STEM classroom-ready materials.
