Educational Activities for K-12

The College of Aeronautics and Engineering offers a variety of K-12 programs for future aeronautics and engineering leaders who are interested in aeronautics, aviation, engineering, engineering technology, computing, and systems. We believe that young people should be given opportunities – beyond the classroom – to explore STEM and interact with fellow future change-makers!  

High School Visits

We are happy to welcome large high school and community groups for on-campus visits. Students have the opportunity to tour facilities, meet with current students/faculty, and participate in hands-on activities experienced in the College of Aeronautics and Engineering at Kent State University. Group tours are available for groups of 8 or more. Students must be in 6th-12th grade.

COMING SOON - 2023-2024 available group tour dates.
