The TakeFlight Program targets elementary age youth at schools and after school programs outside of our existing ASK sites, located in NE Portland and Hillsboro communities. Utilizing science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) curricula, aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards, the mobile units taught by ASK instructors provide a series of engineering and aeronautics lessons (with connections to science, technology and mathematics) that are fun and engaging 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.
Schools we served during the 2015 -2016 year are:
- Beach School, Portland
- Caesar Chavez School, Portland
- Eastwood Elementary, Hillsboro
- George School, Portland
- Kairos PDX, Portland
- Martin Luther King School, Portland
