The Aviation Academy -- a part of Newport News Public Schools in Virginia -- teaches students about aviation, electronics, engineering and technology using hands-on projects. This school year, students will have a 750-pound project when they set out to build an airplane. The project is the kind that hooks students, because it lets them see how science, technology, engineering and math skills can be applied in a real-world setting, said Aaron Smith, program administrator.
