July 14-16 - Nikki Kukwa Memorial Aviation Camp
Partnering with the Aeronautics Division of the College of Applied Engineering, Sustainability and Technology, IWASM hosts the Nikki Kukwa Memorial Aviation Camp on the campus of Kent State University. Established in 2007, the camp gives female high school students the opportunity to explore careers in aviation specifically. This three-day residential experience includes the opportunity to tour Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, experience the university’s Air Traffic Control Laboratory, tour Parker Hannifin’s Flight Department and to fly with a Kent State University flight instructor. Designed as a mother-daughter event, students share the experience with their mother or a female surrogate. Daughters and mothers are housed together in a KSU dormitory where students have the opportunity to learn about life on a college campus. University personnel provide information regarding academic programs, financial aid and campus life to the students and mothers. As you reflect upon your future, remember that women can soar to success in whatever career they choose. The sky is the limit but the choice is yours!
