From the article:
“The idea behind the academy is that students learn best with hands-on, project-based curricula, said Kathleen Fredette. She’s a science and technology educator at iLEAD Schools, a California-based charter school network that has spearheaded Colorado Skies Academy and will be behind the operations there.
Students will have access to technology and facilities at the airport as well as experts and employees in the aerospace industry, she said.
“When kids are next to and watching and listening to – not only a guest presenter – but actually working alongside them, they go, ‘Oh, I never knew that job existed, and, ‘Oh, maybe I could do that,” Fredette said.”
