On Friday, September 23rd, Inspire Aviation Foundation’s Board Chair Moreno Aguiari, along with board members Rich DeAugustinis and Ed Nelson, joined MAX to discuss how the foundation is motivating and preparing tomorrow’s aerospace leaders through engaging real-world experiences today.
Through ASPIRE (Aerospace STEAM Program Inspiring through Real-world Experiences), the foundation is creating an environment where students are excited to learn and their imagination takes flight. ASPIRE enables students to immerse themselves in the action by solving problems along with the heroes in the stories, all the while students will expand their vocabulary, improve critical thinking, and practice crucial brainstorming and teamwork skills, as well as get a glimpse of future career opportunities. Students, ages one to one-hundred, engage in an adventure and access opportunities that will make dream careers obtainable for anyone willing to work and learn from them.
More than 650 students have participated in ASPIRE since its inception through the partnership of local schools. The foundation is working with partners to build a museum and education center to provide state-of-the-art experiential learning opportunities.
The session was moderated by MAX Board Secretary and lead for MAX Minutes Daniela Perry with the Georgia Chamber.
