Aviation and Maritime STEM Education Expo

FPA participates every year in the Aviation and Maritime STEM Education Expo at Boston Logan International Airport.  This year's program will be held on Thursday, May 16, 2019.

The Expo has been a premier educational event that started more than 20 years ago as a collaborative effort sponsored by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Massachusetts Port Authority Office of Diversity & Inclusion/Compliance. The Expo is an important event where representatives from industry, government, and academia join forces to introduce Greater Boston and New England youth and educators to the opportunities and experiences offered by the aviation, maritime, and transportation community.

The format for this year’s event will be as follows:
Exhibitor Set Up 6:00 a.m. – 8:00 a.m.

Coffee and Muffins for Presenters 8:00 a.m. - 8:30 a.m.

Students Arrive and Depart 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

Lunch for the Presenters following students’ departure.

This is an opportunity to share our professionalism and expertise from all areas of the aviation and transportation industries with our regional students. Our focus is STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) this year.  FPA participants help to highlight the correlation between education and careers, and they fly their aircraft are flown into Logan for static display.
