Education Resources

WAI is pleased to offer aviation education activities for use by chapters and others at GIAD events, at any aviation event or in the classroom. These activities may also be used to fulfill the requirements for the WAI Aviation Fun Patch. We welcome suggestions for additional activities that you have successfully used at your aviation event. Contact Cassandra Bosco with comments, questions or additional activities.

This hands-on teaching activity for girls ages 8 to 16 provides instructional materials about the exciting world of helicopters. Thanks to a generous grant from Bell Helicopter, this 11-page packet can be used as a classroom activity, Girls in Aviation Day station, and a project for the WAI Aviation Fun Patch.

The WAI Aviation Fun Patch is available for girls grades 4-12. The Patch is available to WAI Chapters, Girl Scouts, World Association of Girl Guides, American Heritage Girls, and other club and school organizations. The Patch program may be adapted to include challenges of varying degrees of difficulty for the different levels.


Scholarship awards are a major part of what Women in Aviation International is all about. Over the past 20 years WAI has disbursed more than $12 million to its members to help them get ahead and advance into the aviation and aerospace careers they have always dreamed about.

Presented at the annual conference, this free workshop is beneficial for teachers, chapter outreach chairs, scout leaders and youth advisors. Participants learn to use aviation and aerospace educational materials to inspire students, scouts and youth groups.
