Boeing Turkey, Young Guru Academy (ROI) and in collaboration with the younger generation of science, engineering and aviation to develop skills to inspire "Ready to Fly with science!" launched a project called. While the project introduces the science behind aviation and aviation technologies to children, it also aims to equip them with 21st century skills such as creativity, collaboration, technology literacy, and analytical thinking. The long-term goal of the project is to reach more than 40.000 children.
During the COVID-19 period, Twin Aviation Sets were delivered to 20 children in 200 provinces as holiday gifts. The sets have been welcomed by children who have been at home for the past few months due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Thanks to the trainings on the science behind the aviation technologies and the use of Twin Aviation Sets, the children will have the opportunity to learn the technologies of the future by developing their own aviation projects and playing games, by YGA.
Boeing, in 2017, "Boeing Turkey's National Aerospace Plan" which called Turkey has announced its investment plan. Boeing under this plan with Turkey Industry, Technology, Service and Maintenance Advanced Capability growth in cooperation in the field of Development and Turkey in this area aims to contribute to global competitiveness. Boeing Advanced Capability Development program in the context of aviation in Turkey and Turkey's projects aimed at developing qualified human resources to meet the increasing need of skilled labor is expected to maintain its growth in the world's aviation industry yürüytüy. The program includes training for a wide range of aviation industry stakeholders, from airline employees to technicians, engineers to students and supply chain experts. The "Be Ready to Fly with Science" project, developed in partnership with Young Guru Academy, stands out as a part of Boeing's work in this area for younger generations.
Boeing Turkey General Manager and Country Representative Ayşem winding to as "Boeing is a strategic partner and we see growth as an important country in the aviation invest in Turkey's future is extremely important for us. We announced in 2017, "Boeing Turkey's National Aerospace Plan" an indication of our belief in the future of Turkey. invest in the development of human resources of our country, an integral part of sustainable growth and investment in Turkey's competitiveness in the field of aviation. We see this project, which we developed together with YGA, as the seeds of science and technology that we planted in the minds of young generations. While taking these steps, our hope is to ensure that our young people are interested in the aviation industry, which will continue to create high value-added production and employment worldwide in the 21st century. We believe that this project will be an exemplary study in the field of aviation-oriented STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) projects and may find application in different countries in the future. ” said.
YGA Board Member Asude Altıntaş Güray said, “The most exciting part of this project is that the brightest young people in YGA deliver the latest technology to children with limited opportunities and spark a curiosity by sparking them.” she shared.
"Ready to Fly with science" project, developed and produced 1000 Twin Set Aeronautical Sciences in Turkey, will be distributed to 2020 school children in 100 villages in 40.000. Digital trainings for the use of Twin Aviation Science Sets will be provided to the Science and Informatics teachers in the village schools. As a result of these trainings, teachers will be able to carry out their own experiments by organizing workshops and benefiting from the kits with their students. The project aims to inspire children who learn by experiencing the science behind technology through kits, to develop future aviation technologies. One of the long-term goals of the project is to expand the project to include schools with limited opportunities around the world and to provide children with access to science and technology resources.
