LaconiaTeacher workshop

Three exciting professional development workshops will be offered starting March 21 at the Laconia Airport. The workshops are being provided by the certified teacher education staff of WinnAero, the education non-profit based at the airport and using the themes of aviation and aerospace to teach hands-on STEM education. The March 21 workshop is entitled “Rocketry”; March 28 will be “Intro to Flight” and April 18 will be “Aircraft Systems and Airport Operations”. Interested teachers and /or the general public may register for any single workshop or all three. As WinnAero uses the Civil Air Patrol’s (CAP) nationallyapproved STEM curriculum, all attending teachers will receive a one year CAP Aerospace Education membership which includes the opportunity for teachers to file for CAP classroom grants. Participants will get to do the actual hands-on STEM activities they can later incorporate in their own classrooms for students. Besides information on CAP grants, workshop attendees will also discover additional grant opportunities available for STEM teachers from the Air Force Association, the National Association of Rocketry and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. All three workshops take place at the Laconia Airport Terminal Building and run from 8:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. Registration fee for the first workshop is $75 and subsequent workshops $40. Your fee includes all materials, lunch, snacks and the CAP-AEM one year membership. Registration forms and Workshop details are available atwinnaero.org. If you have any questions, please contact the WinnAero Director of Education Dan Caron at dan.caron@winnaero.org. WinnAero workshops are funded by generous grants from the Wolf Aviation Fund and the Air Force Association.
