STEM FLIGHTS

MISSION SELECTION

Welcome to STEM Flights!  We're happy you're here!   

 

Our pre-flight mission activities are designed to encourage exploration and investigation of STEM and Aviation-related topics before you take flight! Included below are four STEM Missions to choose from. After you apply for a STEM Flight, you can begin working on your Mission of choice.
 

  

Please view each Mission and choose ONE that sounds most interesting for you to complete!  Follow the instructions on the Mission page and remember to submit your work.

CHOOSE YOUR 

MISSION 

 

Select ONE Mission below that you would like to complete to advance your STEM skills and knowledge before taking flight! 


Reminder: This is a prerequisite to your STEM Flight and must be completed before strapping on your wings. Please reach out directly to stemedu@stemflights.org if you have any questions!

MISSION 1

Commercial Aviation, General Aviation & Military Flying 

Soar into the skies with Aviation! Learn about exciting pilot careers, explore the world of aviation, investigate the Four Forces of Flight, and  learn how aircrafts fly.  Expand your STEM skills by learning about aviation maintenance or launching a rocket to see the Four Forces of Flight in action. 

You will be thinking like a pilot before this Mission is over!

MISSION 2

Climate, Weather, & Environmental Sciences 

Curious about meteorology, the climate, or weather? Want to learn more about careers in Environmental Science and how you can impact the planet to make a difference?

 

Investigate careers in meteorology, study weather graphs, and see how patterns in the sky impact aviation as you dive into this Mission!

MISSION 3

Drones, Physics & Advanced Air Mobility 

The world of aviation is heading toward advanced technology at a significant pace and we want you to hop on board!  Team up with NASA to learn about the first unmanned aircraft that impacted space travel or dive into the future with NASA's Advanced Air Mobility Playbook.

 

When exploring this exciting Mission, you will learn about how aerospace and aviation can truly transform the world through STEM.
