Grant Awarded to National Flight Academy

In October, the chapter along with the AFCEA Educational Foundation awarded a STEM Teaching Tools grant to the National Flight Academy (NFA) at the Fish House. The $2,000 STEM Teaching Tools grant (2012-2013) was awarded to the NFA as a joint effort between the individual chapter and the Educational Foundation to promote effective science teaching and to enhance the abilities of capable teachers in K-12 schools. “We are quite honored that AFCEA has chosen the National Flight Academy as a worthy recipient for a donation to our scholarship fund,” professed Karen Sindel, sales manager, NFA. The NFA can use the grant monies to purchase supplies and/or equipment, or to go toward teacher scholarships that would augment their science and/or information technology activities in their in-residence program located adjacent to the National Naval Aviation Museum aboard Naval Air Station Pensacola, Florida. The NFA is a subsidiary program of the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation Incorporated, which is authorized but not endorsed or funded by the U.S. Navy or the U.S. government. For more information, please visit the organization’s website at www.afceapns.org or www.nationalflightacademy.com.
