Exposing Students to Aviation in Schools
Through the Aviation Lesson Toolkits and Aviation in Schools Initiative, CAAS actively reaches out to schools to spark students’ interest in Singapore aviation, and the wide and diverse range of careers available in this industry.
Aviation Lesson Toolkits: Aviation-themed Lesson Plans for Teachers
Our aviation lesson toolkits comprise lesson plans with aviation themes woven into subjects such as science, social studies as well as design & technology for secondary schools, and economics for junior colleges. Teachers can use these toolkits as part of the subject's curriculum to expose students to aviation and enhance their learning experience with real-world applications of school subjects.
Aviation in Schools Initiative: Funding and Advisory Support for Schools
If your school is keen to cultivate interest in aviation amongst the students, or develop aviation as a niche or Applied Learning Programme, the Aviation in Schools Initiative (ASI) offers comprehensive funding and advisory support for any activities that foster students’ interest in aviation and its careers, and increase their exposure to an aviation environment.
Your school can enjoy support over three years for a range of activities including:
- Curriculum development
Development of aviation content to be infused into your teaching curriculum e.g. aviation case studies and examples for use in classes
- Teacher development
Formal training for teachers and educators in courses relating to aviation content
- Student programmes
E.g. aeromodelling workshops, kite flying and balloon craft activities, job shadowing stints with the industry, overseas exchange programmes with other aviation schools
- Co-curricular activities
E.g. formation of an Air Scouts CCA, aviation clubs and aeromodelling clubs
- Aviation facilities
Physical infrastructure for aviation instruction or education e.g. educational displays, training labs, discovery centre, aviation simulation
- Administrative manpower
Support with administration of ASI and its programmes
For ASI schools: Get funding support of up to 70% of qualifying costs, capped at $150,000, to develop your aviation plans over three years. This can be used to supplement existing funds from MOE.
