Aerospace Education & STEM Programs
Since 1996, Civil Air Patrol (CAP) has been a crucial partner of AFA, promoting aerospace education and fostering an interest in STEM careers, helping AFA in impacting hundreds of thousands of K-12 students across the country.
As a special partner in aerospace advocacy and education, AFA and CAP have united to join each other’s organizations, leveraging resources, and work toward the promotion of STEM careers.
The Mitchell Institute for Aerospace Power empowers our nation’s leaders by informing, educating, and cultivating insightful policy. AFA established this research institute to carry on General Billy Mitchell’s—one of America’s greatest Airmen—dedicated efforts to expand modernized airpower thinking. Be a part of the conversation as we strive toward our goals for aerospace power.
Everyone uses technology, but not everyone knows how to defend themselves from digital vulnerabilities. AFA's CyberPatriot Program attracts students to cybersecurity and STEM fields. With the skills learned through the CyberPatriot program, students are making a difference at a global level.
Most of us can only dream of outer space. AFA’s StellarXplorers program brings these dreams in closer reach. We inspire students to pursue STEM studies through a special space system design competition that emphasizes all aspects of spacecraft system development and operations.
