SC Aerospace Education Work Group Convenes Educators

image1 (7)On March 15th, the SC Aerospace Education Work Group along with nearly 40 educators and industry representatives convened to discuss possible implementation of the Southern Regional Education Board’s (SREB) Aerospace Engineering Curriculum in South Carolina high schools.

When SC Aerospace formed the Education Work Group last year, one of the top priorities established was to identify an aerospace curriculum that could be implemented in high schools across the state. The Education Work Group engaged in research for one year and ultimately selected the SREB curriculum to formally recommend to the South Carolina Department of Education (SC DOE).  

Representatives from schools across the state attended the March 15th meeting and were provided information on the curriculum along with a Memorandum of Understanding to implement the curriculum.  A representative from the SREB presented the details of the curriculum and the requirements for the schools that choose to implement it. A representative from the SC DOE was in attendance and expressed the department’s support for schools that choose to implement the curriculum.
