Aerospace Education for Teachers Based on Recommendations of Selected Aviation and Space Industries.
Sanders, Leroy John
The study attempted to determine procedures for providing elementary and secondary school teachers with a general knowledge of aerospace science. A two-part rating scale was developed and sent to member companies of the Aerospace Industries Association of America. Results showed that (1) planned industrial tours by teachers, meetings between representatives of industry and education, and directed field study of industries by teachers were highly favored, (2) less than 50 per cent of the companies wrote articles for school journals and related publications, (3) career guidance was rated highly as a teacher contribution to understanding of industry, and (4) thirty per cent of the companies had materials of value and interest to teachers. Recommendations based on the results are made in the study. (BC)
