Students’ options soaring thanks to SVVSD aeronautics

Participation in St. Vrain Valley School District’s increasingly popular aeronautics program has nearly doubled in the past year as students launch into careers in the cockpit or in mastering drone technology.

The 250 students enrolled in the program at the district’s Innovation Center gain conceptual and practical knowledge for careers in either pathway, Jake Marshall, aeronautics program coordinator, stated in a news release.

“The aeronautics program provides students with applicable learning opportunities,” Marshall stated. “A lot of students who participate have similar interests and these courses help them find their niche and gain confidence in real-world skills.”
