Professional Development

In a two day professional development opportunity, gain a broader understanding of how FT STEM fits into your everyday teaching from unit design to remote controlled building and flight training in both fixed wing and multirotor platforms. Explore how the natural progression of FT STEM in your classroom can empower your students to utilize a new system of tools and technology fostering critical thinking in design with personalized problem solving opportunities.


“The FT STEM program started, at least for me, at a very early age in my education. It was an experience of a lifetime, a gateway to the sky, and a fun hobby for anyone who wants to tackle something outside the ordinary. Continuing outside of middle school, the effects it has on my education and my future is immense. The program drives me to continue pursuing aerospace engineering in my future, and while the ways I can stay involved into FT STEM have reduced, I feel the call to the sky tugging on me daily over the summer. In addition, the Loveland FT STEM program has introduced me to people who also feel this tug to the sky and the relationships with these people, both older and younger than me, will never be lost.”

“FT STEM allowed me to see how we can bring the most advanced technologies and sciences, and simplify it to something that younger kids can learn about math, physics, and forms of engineering, as well as leadership skills, such as teaching someone to fly or build. Building foam airplanes also taught me that everything takes practice, and time to learn. The growth from my first airplane to my next taught me to keep at what you love to do, no matter how many failures you encounter. FT STEM taught me that failure doesn't mean the end, just another opportunity to improve and learn.”

“FT STEM curriculum and the online Student Hangar has been a fantastic tool for connecting students in our homeschool community with the Flite Test lessons and resources we need for our various scratch-build aviation projects. The way the FT STEM lessons are organized and sequenced makes the STEM principles very approachable for students. I wish I would have discovered FT STEM sooner!”

“The FT STEM program has done so much for me in the past years. This program is what has driven me to pursue aerospace engineering. Beginning with the middle school program, and now finishing with the high school program has been so much fun. The opportunities I have been given from FT STEM have been ones I will never forget. From helping kids build their own planes, to being invited to a police/swat training for my senior project. This MESArc team I will never forget, and I can't wait to see where it will go with FT STEM.”

“I am very excited to use the FT STEM curriculum to give my students with special needs access to not only the STEM concepts in an accessible and engaging way, but to also practice with the employment/job skills element that will be necessary for success in their future.”
