In early May the Cadets at Fox Cities Composite Squadron hosted the Boy Scout Troop 3161 for a night of “flying”! As part of the Civil Air Patrol STEM kit program each Squadron is able to take advantage of a quad-copter STEM kit. This specific kit comes with the electronics needed to build and fly the quad-copter! Members from both groups assembled, and practiced flying the quad-copter in the closed hangar at Fox Cities Composite Squadron as well as participated in a little bit of drill and ceremony. The Boy Scout Troop was lined up in a flight and our senior Cadets shared a little taste of CAP style drill. It was an amazing evening of learning and sharing and a great time was had by all!
Civil Air Patrol is tasked by Congress to share Aerospace Education within our Communities and as a Squadron we look forward to these type of events! STEM Kits are available to CAP Members as well as AE Members, which can include homeschool groups, teachers, or other educational groups.
