CLICK HERE for the national Fox & Friends Story on the STEM Aviation Robotics Exploring Program.
Aerial Robotics Exploring is a college and career readiness program with a mission to engage youth in 6th through 12th grade in an exciting mentor and leadership based program to develop “hands-on” STEM aviation robotic skills that inspires innovation, and fosters self-confidence, leadership experience, social networks, team building, and life skills.
Exploring participants learn aerodynamics, theory of flight, propulsion, design, strength of materials, navigation, robotics, telemetry, and more with a focus of “hands-on” career experience. Working in teams of 4 or 5 Exploring participants design and build quadcopters while mentors inspire and guide the theories and skills of aviation, flying, and utilization of STEM applications.

The new start-up has received interest to develop 10 to 15 more Exploring STEM Aviation Robotics Clubs in urban and metro Chicago, and they are currently searching for financial support from companies to aide in funding the cost of the equipment, building materials, and other program costs.
