In this program, students will have the opportunity to explore aerospace careers throughout the Denver area. Most activities will occur in and around Centennial Airport. Through the program, students will also develop life skills like leadership, citizenship and character.

This meeting will feature a talk from Private George Sakato. Private George T. Sakato distinguished himself by extraordinary heroism in action during WWII. After his platoon had virtually destroyed two enemy defense lines, his unit was pinned down by heavy enemy fire. Disregarding this fire, Private Sakato made a one-man rush that encouraged his platoon to charge and destroy the enemy strongpoint. To read more about Private George T. Sakato, click here.
Attendees will also enjoy an interactive introduction to air traffic control. Students will be assigned a tail number (i.e. Stearman N735YP) and learn how air traffic control works on a mock-scale runway.
If you have a friend in high school that would like to check out the Aerospace Exploring Post, they are more than welcome to join us at the meeting!
