First launched in Australia in 2009 and based on the very successful program established in the UK, Cool Aeronautics is the Royal Aeronautical Society’s STEM outreach program that aims to introduce school children (particularly primary age) and the public to the fascinating world and people of flying, aerospace engineering, and space. These activities represent a crucial part of the Society’s efforts to provide a ‘through-life’ approach to its outreach and careers activities. In particular, Cool Aeronautics embodies the Society’s aim to ‘promote aerospace and aviation to a new generation’.
The RAeS Australian Division works with other professional organisations (AIAA) and educational partners (UNSW) to offer a range of Cool Aeronautics activities in STEM outreach. These include visits to schools, interactive activities at community events and day-long events for invited schools.
Cool Aeronautics Needs You!
We welcome interest from schools and community groups to engage in offered activities as well as from individuals, groups and organisations to assist in their delivery.
