AMA members Dennis Michael & Tom Vintaloro, of the Litespeed Flight Demonstration Team, have endeavored to make model aviation and its technological sophistication the most captivating visual tool ever used in a elementary school presentation.
Billed as a motivational, inspirational and life-changing experience the Litespeed Airshow program opens with the talented radio controlled pilots thrilling the kids with acrobatic airplanes, racing jets and drones, right inside the school gymnasium. In addition to the aerial demonstration, the children are taught basic lessons in aerodynamics on a level they can understand. By introducing Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics the children are inspired and encouraged to study these academic disciplines.
Then the history of flight is brought to life through the compelling story of the Wright Brother’s childhood dream of building a flying machine. This story is sure to inspire vision, perseverance and imagination. The STEM experience is reinforced with valuable character lessons, encouraging children to work hard and to say no to drugs, alcohol, tobacco and profanity. In addition the children are taught to faithfully honor their parents, neighbors, teachers and educators.
For the first time in an elementary school assembly, the Litespeed Airshow introduces STEM, (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) in a fun, exciting and inspirational way. There’s nothing like it!
