Martin, Arthur I.; Jones, K. K.
This document outlines the aerospace-aviation education program of the State of Texas. In this publication the course structures have been revised to fit the quarter system format of secondary schools in Texas. The four courses outlined here have been designed for students who will be consumers of aerospace products, spinoffs, and services or who may find careers in the aerospace industry. After a brief introduction, philosophy statement including rationale, and a list of qualifications for aerospace-aviation teachers, the course descriptions are given. The first two courses, Aerospace-Aviation Education I and II are interdisciplinary courses which introduce interested high school students to the history and basic scientific and technological fundamentals of flight. Aerospace-Aviation Education III provides students with an advanced technological orientation and may include a flight training program. Aerospace-Aviation Education IV is the most advanced course of the series. Flight Laboratory Options are outlined for III and IV. Appended are lists of possible teaching aids, field trips, classroom activities and information sources. (MR)
