The sky is the limit for future engineers, scientists, and pilots who will have the opportunity Friday, June 23, to explore the world of aviation first-hand at the Utah Valley University Provo Airport Campus.

Made possible through a grant provided by the JetBlue Foundation, nearly 100 students from local middle schools are set to tour the UVU School of Aviation Sciences as part of the UVU PREP summer program. The JetBlue Foundation seeks out programs focusing on communities traditionally under-represented in STEM fields including women, minority groups and veterans. Beyond just grants, the JetBlue Foundation provides in-kind support, mentoring, internships and more to make a difference for the next generation of aviators, dispatchers, aircraft mechanics and pilots.

Two separate tours will take place, at 9 a.m. and 12 p.m., each lasting approximately two hours. Upon arrival to the hangar, two lucky students will be selected to join university instructors on a short flight over the valley, before returning to join their classmates on the tour. (more…)
