- EDUCATION GOALS - CURRENT PROGRAMS - STUDENT CONFERENCE INITIATIVES - COST - ASSESSMENT - SUMMARY OF PROPOSAL Strat Plan Initiative
AIAA will lead and integrate the aerospace community’s efforts to stimulate technical excellence and lifelong interest in aerospace professional careers. These efforts will fulfill current and future workforce needs through three separate but complementary components: K-12 Outreach, Student Programs, and Professional Development. Each of these three components has a distinct target constituency and associated strategies. Education - Vision
Membership Retention, Growth, Diversity, and Engagement Increase …..student membership by roughly 28% (from 7,000 in 2008 to 9,000 by 2013). Education Programs Professional development goals: 1. Increase professional development average number of students per class by 40% (From 13 in 2009 to 18 in 2013). Expand coursework offerings by partnering with other organizations. 2. Academic affairs goals: Maintain the number of AIAA members who are industry-based Program Evaluators for ABET, Inc. above 30% of the total number of AIAA evaluators. 3. Student member activity goals: Increase student member participation in professional conferences, student conferences, and design (paper) competitions by 40%. 4. Pre-college program goals: Increase educator associate members by 30% and substantially expand online K-12 materials. 5. Educator recognition goals: Significantly expand the local recognition of teachers throughout the educational system for efforts contributing to a stronger aerospace workforce. Strategic Goals for 2009–2013
- Student Activities -- Student Branch Activities -- Student Conferences (Regional and International) -- Student Journal -- Board of Directors, Student Liaison - K-12 Outreach -- Educator Associates -- AIAA Foundation Classroom Grants -- Resources to Make Money Stretch -- Ask Polaris -- AIAA Foundation Educator Achievement Award -- Curriculum and Homework Help -- Educational Partners -- Resources to Inspire Your Students -- Kid's Place -- Students & Educators Photo Album -- Education Alley Current Programs
Increase …..student membership by roughly 28% (from 7,000 in 2008 to 9,000 by 2013). Goal 28% Projection 11%
Student member activity goals: Increase student member participation in section activities, conferences, and design/paper competitions by 100%.
Synergy between Student Activities with STEM K-12 Outreach Create synergy between Student Activities at the university level with STEM K-12 outreach programs to meet multiple needs and objectives within Education Student Activities Objectives · Provide more opportunities for Freshman and Sophomore level university students · Capitalize on current programs (Student Paper Conference) · Encourage mentoring through giving back to K-12 students STEM K-12 Outreach · Encourage K-12 students with real-world role models · Creating learning opportunities with younger university level students · Instill respect for mentoring down the ranks as students appreciate mentoring provided to them
Opportunities for Synergy – Education Initiative #1 Program Proposal: Regional and International Student Branch K-12 Mentoring Competition · Student Branch’s work with their local K-12 students and teachers to develop and implement a program that benefits K-12 outreach. · Students should NOT be creating content but working with teachers to encourage students and provide an example of possibilities. · Report at Student Conference via presentation and 1 page talker (including # of branch students involved and K-12 students reached) Metrics: · # of Student Branches participating. · # of K-12 students reached.
Student Branch Outreach and Competitions (Regional & International) Objective: Meet Strategic Goals by integrating Student with K-12 Outreach Activities -- Take advantage of college student desires to do outreach and volunteer work -- Take advantage of motivation that college engineers can bring to K-12 Students -- Mechanism to increase branch, conference and outreach activities Cost: Award Prizes for 1 st, 2 nd and 3 rd place ($200, $100, $50) at Regionals in 2011 and International in 2012 through 2014 -- Currently prizes of $500, $300 and $250 awarded for undergraduate, masters and team -- Current total $3,550 per region ($3150 for prizes and $400 for miscellaneous expenses) from AIAA Foundation plus $50 for each official Advisor Student Member delegate who attends the conference. -- The Foundation pays travel and room for International Student Conference competitors (~$800/domestic & $2200/international) -- Potential total increases $350 per region ($2800 total) plus $50 per delegate sponsorship (10 students/region - +$4000) -- Starting in 2012 increase in International Student Conference Budget of $7800 (7 domestic & 1 international students) -- Total Cost to IDC $6800 (2011), $14,600 (2012), $14,600 (2013), $7800 (2014) Time: Start Spring 2011, end Spring 2014 Metric: Student Attendance at Regional Conferences + New outreach K-12 numbers Education Initiative #1
Opportunities for Synergy – Education Initiative #2 Program Proposal: Regional Freshman/Sophomore Presentation/Abstract Competition University student branch sends a team of 1-2 students to regional student conference to discuss a specific topic: team, engineering, or aerospace historical activities Report at Student Conference via presentation and 2 page abstract Metrics: # of student branches participating at regional conferences # of freshman/sophomore students participating
Freshman/Sophomore Competition Category (Regional) Objective: Meet Strategic Goals by increasing attendance of Freshman and Sophomores at regional competitions -- Take advantage of freshman and sophomore interest in becoming involved with AIAA activities -- Serve as pull for students primarily involved in foundational courses -- Opportunity for young go-getters to become involved in AIAA, get experience attending professional-style conferences and also receive constructive and friendly feedback on their presentation skills from professional engineers. Cost: Award Prizes for 1 st, 2 nd and 3 rd place ($125, $75, $50) at Regionals in Spring 2011 through Spring 2013 -- Potential total increases $2 50 per region($2000 total) per region plus $50 per delegate rebate (10 students/region - +$4000) -- Total Cost to IDC $6000 (2011, 2012, 2013) Time: Start Spring 2011, end Spring 2013 Metric: Student Attendance at Regional Conferences Education Initiative #2
Education Vision and Goal Initiatives - Approve Education Initiatives 1 and 2 through Spring 2014 - Objective: Meet Strategic Goals by -- increasing attendance at regional competitions -- increasing AIAA student membership -- Increase K-12 Outreach - Cost - Metric: Student Attendance at Regional Conferences + New outreach K-12 numbers -- Update Briefed at each May IDC/Board Meeting by VP Education -- Recommendation whether appropriate to sustain in AIAA operational budget at ASM meeting 2014 --- Long term budget impact ~$20K – new student membership dues -- If recommended take to Foundation/Board for continued funding opportunities Recommendation to IDC and Finance
