Education Resources

The WAI Girl Scout Aviation Fun Patch is available for girls grades 4-12. The Patch is available to WAI Chapters and to Girl Scout Chapter leaders. The Patch program may be adapted to include challenges of varying degrees of difficulty for the different levels for girls ages 8-16 and within the Girl Scout organization, from Daisies and Brownies through Seniors and Ambassadors.

This hands-on teaching activity for girls ages 8 to 16 provides instructional materials about the exciting world of helicopters. Thanks to a generous grant from Bell Helicopter, this 11-page packet can be used as a classroom activity, Girls in Aviation Day station, and a project for the Girl Scout Aviation Fun Patch.

WAI has developed this presentation on Careers in Aviation for use by our members, chapters, and educators. We hope you'll find it a useful tool in encouraging students to consider careers in aviation.

Soar to new heights with a career in aviation and aerospace! Aviation companies are hiring and there are thousands of dollars in scholarships available for training. Learn more about the rewarding career opportunities available in the aviation and aerospace industries.

Presented at the annual conference, this free workshop is beneficial for teachers, chapter outreach chairs, scout leaders and youth advisors. Participants learn to use aviation and aerospace educational materials to inspire students, scouts and youth groups.

WAI is pleased to offer aviation education activities for use by chapters and others at GIAD events, at any aviation event or in the classroom. These activities may also be used to fulfill the requirements for the WAI Girl Scout Aviation Patch. We welcome suggestions for additional activities that you have successfully used at your aviation event. Contact Cassandra Bosco with comments, questions or additional activities.

Scholarship awards are a major part of what Women in Aviation International is all about. Over the past 20 years WAI has disbursed more than $10 million to its members to help them get ahead and advance into the aviation and aerospace careers they have always dreamed about.
