In collaboration with CRANE, Sacramento City College faculty in Aeronautics programs will offer young women in high school and their CTE teachers a rare opportunity to participate in an interactive field trip to Sacramento City College’s McClellan campus.

They will have a chance to interact with college professors and industry professionals who are interested in the CTE students’ unique talents. In the course of this Keep ‘em Flying event, students will: engage in projects covering Aeronautics, Engines, Flight Simulators, & Non-Destructive Testing; familiarize themselves with SCC Labs and Facilities; interact with SCC professors; realize how valuable their skills are to industry; connect with industry professionals who are ready to help them become the next generation of aeronautics professionals; learn what steps to take after graduation to be successful in the industry; and enjoy a lunch with industry partners.
