Our Mission Statement
In an ever-changing, increasingly complex world, it's more important than ever that our nation's youth are prepared to bring knowledge and skills to solve problems, make sense of information, and know how to gather and evaluate evidence to make decisions. These are the kinds of skills that students develop in science, technology, engineering and math—disciplines collectively known as STEM. If we want a nation where our future leaders, neighbors, and workers have the ability to understand and solve some of the complex challenges of today and tomorrow, and to meet the demands of the dynamic and evolving workforce, building students' skills, content knowledge, and fluency in STEM fields is essential.
Our goal at SAPA is to bring to the forefront pilots that have the background, education, and skills to make the sciences come alive. We screen and review each pilots credentials to make sure that when you see the Certified SAPA certificate the pilot will meet your need as a presenter. Each pilot must show a background in one of the sciences listed in the requirements section.
In addition to having a science background the pilot must have completed at least 4 STEM events per year to maintain the Certification.
