Lockheed Martin has come out with a new digital curriculum for students of high-school, parents and educators.
This free, online STEM education program is part of Generation Beyond and thousands of classrooms in US are already using it.
So what all is there in the new Generation Beyond: Aviation curriculum from Lockheed Martin?
There are a number of video challenges, must be an enjoyable learning experience for students, and then a virtual field trip to the popular Skunk Works of Lockheed Martin and select US high schools will go for surprise STEM lab takeovers.
Aerospace is a world filled with excitement and Generation Beyond: Aviation put it to advantage to educate and inspire high school students about STEM careers, said Lockheed Martin’s Aeronautics business executive vice president, Michele Evans.
Such exposure will push high school students to think differently, innovate, take risks and collaborate. These are the skills that are required to be successful in the high-tech economy of today.
This is not all, the aim of new Generation Beyond: Aviation is to make students think like scientists and engineers and make them face real world technology challenges – such as fighting wildfire or making flight suits for military pilots safer.
They will get to know about a number of cutting-edge technologies, explore the exciting work that is offered by a STEM career and apply critical thinking skills. They will learn things from people who are already in this field.
The Virtual Field Trip: Think Like the Skunks Works is an important part of the curriculum. It will feature a live video from Palmdale, California on Tuesday, December 4, 2018 at 1:00 pm ET / 10:00 am PT.
This virtual tour will take students behind the scenes of Lockheed Martin’s famous Skunk Works. They will get to see some of the pioneering technologies of the “skunks’ which promise to change the future of flight.
