UTRS Proudly Sponsors Hands-on Aviation Learning

Hands on Aviation

In its ongoing support for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) initiatives, Universal Technical Resource Services, Inc. (UTRS) recently co-sponsored the Educational Information and Resource Center’s (EIRC) 7th annual Careers in Aviation Summer Academy. The week-long program offers a unique opportunity for middle and high school students to explore various federal, military, and commercial aviation careers and learn about the vital role air transportation plays in bettering the American economy and social way of life. Through EIRC’s partnership with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) William J. Hughes Technical Center, located at Atlantic City International Airport, students toured the FAA Flying Laboratories, the Standard Terminal Automation Replacement Systems (STARS) Lab, and the Forgotten Warriors Vietnam Museum in Cape May, New Jersey, among other places. In addition to learning the history of aviation and aerospace, students delved into the science of aircraft technology, engineering and maintenance, and helped build and launch model rockets with the men and women who work in these innovative fields.

UTRS is proud to support the Careers in Aviation Summer Academy’s annual hands-on learning and enrichment opportunity, which helps students soar to their highest potential. To view photos from this year’s event, click here
