Our Mission

One of the two missions of the Winston-Salem Technology Educational Group, Inc. is to establish a series of meaningful technology-themed, youth-oriented education programs that will be offered to students throughout the Piedmont area. The focus of these courses will be to prepare students for professional careers as technicians in aviation/aerospace and related high-tech industries.

The curriculum of each course has been designed by degreed and licensed educational professionals with long-established backgrounds in their fields. The daily lessons are meant not only to teach skills and promote understanding of the subject matter, but to develop the desire in each student to pursue it as a career.

Who We Are

The first four courses to be offered were designed by current, and retired, middle and secondary public school teachers who have taught related state-certified year-long classes. These teachers earned reputations as classroom leaders who could consistently earn student loyalty and make lessons relevant to each student’s goals and career aspirations. In designing these courses, our educators distilled the subject matter into high-interest, hands on, “learn-by-doing” lessons which their experience taught them is the best way for students to learn.

Our educational team members have:

  • Designed original curriculum in aviation, wood-working, digital media, automotive repair, and Green technology that have met NC state adopted curriculum standards.
  • Are currently, or formerly, certified and licensed public school instructors.
  • Received advanced degrees in education in their subject areas.
  • Received recognition for their work outside the classroom in their areas of expertise. They have had careers as administrators, department heads, authors, and lecturers.

AIR AND SUMMER CAMP

The Carolina Air and Auto Center has created a SUMMER CAMP which gives students from across the Triad the opportunity to learn about aviation and the many career opportunities available in the aerospace industry.

Elementary, middle and high school students will be eligible to participate.
