6 Committee Goals Inspire K-12 students to pursue and enjoy STEM learning through aerospace Establish and maintain communication links between the professional membership and the K-12 education community Provide guidance and training for value added activities and lessons for sections and members to use in K-12 outreach opportunities, such as education/classroom interaction, scout activities, section events Develop and support AIAA STEM K-12 Outreach Signature Events. These Signature Events are the Institute level components of major AIAA sponsored and/or AIAA branded STEM K-12 Outreach programs. 6

7 Committee Goals One of our recent strategic goals was to engage 60% of the professional membership in STEM K-12 Outreach activities. A more important goal than ever! Market research has shown that 52% of professional scientists and engineers want to get involved in STEM K-12 Outreach [ Asher, private communication, 2012] Implies that the Outreach participation opportunities we provide are a significant professional membership benefit 7

8 Expanding to Meet the Challenge If we succeed in mobilizing 60% of the members Define engagement as 20 hours per year => 350 student interactions per member per year = 7 million student interactions per year Does not include effect of large-crowd force multiplier programs like Educator Academy Reaching this level of involvement will require us to provide a clear, engaging, well organized activity framework 8

9 Expanding to Meet the Challenge What is the need? Holy Grail = 59 million student interactions per year Practical –Provide all of the 42 million elementary and middle school students in the US the opportunity to participate in an AIAA-branded STEM K-12 program or interact with an AIAA volunteer once before leaving middle school. –Provide all of the 17 million high school students in the US the opportunity to participate in an AIAA-branded STEM K-12 program or interact with an AIAA volunteer at least once more before leaving high school. = 8.1 million student interactions per year Doable! [7 million plus curricula > 8.1 million] 9

10 Level of Intensity Organizing 20,000 people is a non-trivial task Requires large, engaged Section committees Use Choir model = 5% of the membership, engaged every week Requires many of us to change our view of THIS Committee. Please make us your major volunteer focus and commitment Not an add-on capstone appointment Make it FUN! 10

11 Charge for Today Expand your Vision! Dare! Start thinking BIG! Develop and approve the plans and programs needed to mobilize 20,000 people. Figure out how to get all the Sections onboard. Figure out how to get the word out much better. Embrace the challenge. It is going to be fun! 11
