A group of 700 middle school students joined Hon. Kevin Chief, Minister of Jobs and the Economy, at Red River College’s Stevenson Campus today, as he officially proclaimed May 25–29 Aerospace in Manitoba Week.
Chief made the announcement while attending Aviation and Aerospace in Manitoba (AAiM) Day, an annual event that draws Grade 6 students to RRC to learn more about the province’s thriving aerospace and aviation industries.
While at Stevenson, students were given a first-hand look at some of the concepts they’re learning about in the “Flight” module of their Grade 6 curriculum, including aircraft inspection, fundamentals of flight, manufacturing, rocketry and craters.
Additional Aerospace Week activities include a special supplement in the Winnipeg Free Press on May 25, an industry networking breakfast meeting on May 27, and a community-building volunteer event at Siloam Mission on May 29.
Learn more about AAiM Day, made possible each year by RRC, the Manitoba Aerospace Human Resources Council and a dedicated group of 150 volunteers.
