Our Programs

 

Our three main programs are the following:

TakeFlight – Targets elementary age youth at schools and after school programs outside of our existing ASK classrooms in N/NE Portland and Hillsboro communities.  Instructors provide fun and engaging STEM activities while inspiring positive STEM experiences with youth at an early age with the goal of motivating them to persist in STEM related activities and classes. Read more on our TakeFlight web page.

InFlight Targets middle and high school age youth at our sites located at PCC- Cascade Campus and Hillsboro Airport.  The program involves lessons in airway sciences and connections to STEM, flight simulation tutorials, academic, career and higher education awareness, informal mentoring between instructors and students, leadership and citizen skills lessons and a culminating flight in a private plane. Read more on our InFlight web page.

TeenFlight™ – Introduced in 2009, TeenFlight™ serves students 14 and older who build, and eventually fly, an RV-12 aircraft from a professional kit at our Hillsboro Airport site.  Teen Flight youth pursue an “applied engineering curriculum” including learning to read plans, riveting, measuring, fitting, electrical systems, engine systems, etc. Read more on our TeenFlight™ web page.

    • Hi Ilene,

      We have programs in NE Portland and Hillsboro. Which area are you interested in? We have a program called TeenFlight that is going to start mid and late November where high school kids can build a plane. Looks as though your son is the right age 🙂

      • Hi Jackie! So sorry for the delay. I didn’t realize the email would be posted on your site and not come through email so I never got the reply. That was my fault for not checking back on the site. I am interested in Hillsboro location. I realize we missed the program starting in November. When will the next program start? Thank you!

  2. I am the STEAM coach at Butternut Creek Elementary and I am looking for information about your after school programs. We are working with a VERY tight budget that will heavily impact our program choices.

  3. Do you serve other areas outside of Portland/Hillsboro? I teach at an elementary school located west of Salem and I am trying to find resources for STEM related activities.
