WinnAero adds new section to ACE Academy to meet growing demand

GILFORD -- Local youth aviation education program WinnAero is has added a class section because of growing demand.

"Due to increased demand from parents and students, we are pleased to announce that we've added a new section to our existing ACE Academy lineup for August" said WinnAero Educational Programming Director Dan Caron.

The new section will meet Aug. 4-8 and is a combination middle school and high school group. Applications are now being accepted.

"This is our fourth year of conducting ACE Academies which bring STEM subject matter to youths in a hands-on fun way" Caron noted. "This year we filled the middle and high school sections faster than expected and already have 48 students enrolled in the first scheduled Academies" he added.

Caron said it was obvious to the WinnAero Board that more students wanted this unique opportunity to learn STEM with an aviation perspective and so the board voted to offer the additional section.

Caron also pointed out that, in addition to the newly opened middle and high school section of ACE, there are a few remaining seats still open in the elementary school level ACE Academy also running Aug. 4-8. Students, or their parents, interested in either section should contact Caron at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
