May 2015: Culminating years of research and consultation with educators and community groups, launch of the Wings Aerospace Academy charter program was approved for Fall 2015 by the Wings Board of Directors. In conjunction with the certified, multi-district charter school of Elevate Academy, the WAA will incorporate online education and several proven designs for STEM-based learning within an aerospace context. Beginning in classrooms and aerospace facilities at Lowry with 6th, 7th and 8th graders in the Fall, the program will grow with development of Exploration of Flight as a learning center into a middle-high school program. Wings’ new COO Mark Hyatt led innovative charter programs at the local, state and national level, and Director of Education Rob Stannard brings aerospace engineering and superintendent experiences to this unique development. Enrollments are being accepted through the summer. Information is available at www.WingsAerospaceAcademy.org.
