The National Flight Academy is offering an exclusive rate to Escambia County students for its AMBITION program. Available to rising 7th-12th grade Escambia County students, the six-day, five-night session will be held on Sunday, May 29, through Friday, June 3.
Attendees will live aboard the virtual aircraft carrier, Ambition, where they will experience an immersive, aviation-based adventure that is revolutionizing Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education.
The program starts with an aeronautical story that weaves STEM learning objectives with important 21st century skills including critical thinking, problem solving, teamwork and communication. It all leads to an unparalleled learning experience for our leaders of tomorrow.
“This is the unique opportunity for local students to branch out and explore a once-in-a-lifetime experience,” said marketing director Malerie Shelton. “After the week-long program, they’ll be surprised how much they’ve expanded their math and science skills without ever opening a textbook,” she added.
“There’s nowhere else in the world where students can plan humanitarian missions, fly simulators, tour and observe an air traffic control tower and see the Blue Angels in just one week,” she furthered.
The exclusive rate for the six-day-long program on May 29 through June 3 is now $750 per person, regularly $1,250.
