Review for Girls With Wings, Inc., Lakewood, OH, USA
When I first came upon GWW, I was searching for aviation programs for women and girls. I was looking specifically for classes or academies or summer camps for girls who are interested in aviation and found the site that Lynda Meeks founded.
My 12 year old daughter is very serious about becoming a pilot and wanting a career in aviation. She currently flies a Robinson R22 and is working toward her helicopter pilot certification.
I was thrilled to find this organization that promotes the aviation interests for girls and women. I am heavily involved as an engineering mentor for several local FIRST Robotics teams at the middle and high school levels and am passionate about recruiting girls to get more of them interested and excited about STEM careers (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). Girls With Wings definitely fits the model of inspiration toward this end. Kudos to Lynda Meeks for donating her time and energy for such a worthy cause.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
The GWW is personally inspiring my 12 year old daughter to pursure her dreams and train for a career in aviation sciences.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Develop a program to partner with middle schools in teaching an optional STEM curriculum with an aviation module.
