Homeschool students to explore aviation

A student with the Inland Christian Academic Program participates in an aviation workshop called "Young Eagles flight" in April 2012 in Chino.

Inland Christian Academic Program is offering aviation workshops in Riverside and Corona this spring. 

The aviation workshops will encourage students of all ages to capture the vision of aviators past and present.

The field of aviation provides students with opportunities for practical application of physical science and basic chemistry principles, math and geography concepts, and measurement and problem-solving skills.

The ICAP aviation workshops will use the recently developed Aerospace Connections in Education curriculum from the Civil Air Patrol. CAP National Headquarters envisioned this program to “expose students to the world of aerospace in hopes of inspiring the next generation of the aerospace workforce.”

Through financial assistance from the Air Force Association, NASA, and others, CAP has provided teachers with an engaging theme and even free T-shirts that will build excitement, identity and camaraderie in ICAP aviation students.

ICAP’s aviation workshops will meet one hour per week for 16 weeks, beginning Jan. 29. The Riverside campus will host workshops on Tuesdays, and the Corona campus will host workshops on Thursdays. Cost and times vary by age group. Registration is in process and will continue until the workshops are filled.

ICAP is a program of the nonprofit Quest Educational Solutions. There is a cost for each workshop series, but it varies by age. It ranges from $65 plus $10 supply fee for K-second-graders to $120 plus $15 supply fee for seventh- through 12th-graders.
