Major Art Urban

IMG_0713Let the Illinois Wing Ignite the Imagination in both CAP members and the general public through CAP’s Aerospace Education Program.

For the internal program don’t be afraid to use both the AEX and STEM programs. When using the STEM program don’t forget to go on line in e-services to submit a completion form, if you don’t you will not be able to sign out another kit.

For the external program the entire squadron should take an active role in going into the community. Everyone knows at least one teacher or principal, talk to them to become an AEM ( Aerospace Education Member). Explain to them the benefits of the program e.g. free curriculum materials, able to participate in the AEX program, and be able to request STEM kits from National. Give presentations in the classrooms. Become a merit badge counselor for the Scouts and put on merit badge workshops. Give presentations at your local library and to various civic organizations. The opportunities are endless. When you do a presentation don’t forget to be in uniform (You are representing CAP) and make sure you take plenty of photos to document the activity. You can also submit them to the local newspaper and submit them for posting onto our web page.

As the new Director of Aerospace Education for the Wing I am looking forward to see that we “Ignite the Imagination ” in Illinois. As a good friend of mine Dr. Mae C. Jemison once said “Never limit yourself because of someone else’s limited imagination “. We can do it!!!
