Our program objectives for this project are as follows:

  1. We expect to develop an innovative environment for encouraging minority students to study and pursue the Aeronautics discipline;
  2. We intend to increase the number of minorities pursuing BS, MS and Ph.D. degrees in the Aeronautics field;
  3. We will further enhance successful outreach programs, such as FLAME, to attract students that are not already part of these programs;
  4. We will develop new courses of instruction and in the process create a rich new learning environment for Aeronautics;
  5. We will establish a digital communications means (via the Internet) for dissemination of and access to the ALLSTAR software;
  6. We will demonstrate and test the ALLSTAR scalability and encourage and facilitate ongoing use of the ALLSTAR at both pre-college and community college levels; and,
  7. We will support ongoing software enhancement, commercialization and marketing of the ALLSTAR software products.
  8. Provide a resource for teachers who want to use the Internet for Aerospace Education in their classroom.

 

Expected Outcomes for this project are as follows:

  1. Significant improvement in both the delivery of and quality of Aeronautics and related instruction;
  2. An increase in the number of minority Aeronautical engineering applicants and those successfully matriculating through the program;
  3. A reduction in number of transfer students from Aeronautics;
  4. Development of high quality, feature rich ALLSTAR and related software products;
  5. Measurable increase in the use of a digital communications as an effective means of educational instruction and outreach; and,
  6. Broad academic and commercial marketing of the ALLSTAR software.
