Aerospace Educators Workshop
On Saturday of the event, SUN ‘n FUN hosts the annual Aerospace Educators’ Workshop. From the moment you arrive and get your official totebag, you will be immersed in aviation and space activities to ignite learning in your classroom. After participating in hands on sessions, meeting other aerospace educators, and gaining a huge assortment of materials, enjoy a catered lunch while listening to our keynote speaker, Astronaut Greg Johnson. The annual Ray Lien Award will be presented to an outstanding aerospace educator.
Choose from 15 concurrent sessions held in the Central Florida Aerospace Academy. Seats are limited. Register today. And, you could be one of four lucky teachers who flies with the AeroShell Aerobatic Team. Motivate your students to reach the sky and enjoy the atmosphere up there with them.
